The traditional strawberry pie is a timeless classic bursting with sweet and tangy flavors. It’s a simple dessert that pleases everyone, especially when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, fresh cream, homemade whipped cream, or powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar). It’s truly the go-to recipe to satisfy your pie cravings!
The secret to a well-set classic tart is to let it cool completely. Otherwise, if you cut into your beautiful pie too soon, the filling might become runny and spread on the plate.
With a few basic ingredients like flour, salt, and butter, you can easily make your own flaky pie crust for your delicious pies. But don’t worry, you can also simply buy one from the grocery store!
You can replace quick-cooking tapioca with cornstarch, potato starch, sifted flour, or gelatin. However, the end result may not be exactly the same. Your pie might be slightly more liquid or gelatinous depending on the chosen ingredient.
Fresh strawberries, chopped
Shortcrust pastry (homemade or store-bought)
First, preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
In a mixing bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, quick-cooking tapioca, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Next, in a small bowl, mix the ingredients for the beaten egg mixture. Set aside.
Then, line a deep 23 cm (9-inch) tart pan with the first pie crust. Spread the strawberry filling evenly on the bottom crust and brush the edges of the crust with the egg mixture.
Cover the pie with the second pie crust, making a small incision in the center to allow steam to escape. Trim off any excess dough around the edges of the tart and seal by pressing the rim with a fork or your fingers.
Finally, brush the top of the delicious strawberry pie with the remaining egg mixture or milk. Place the pie pan on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Allow the pie to cool completely at room temperature before serving it cold or slightly warm. If desired, garnish with fresh mint leaves and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
It’s simple! For this luscious dessert recipe, if you want to use frozen strawberries, make sure to thaw them before using. Allow them to drain in a sieve to remove excess liquid.
Otherwise, your pie might end up being more watery compared to using fresh strawberries. You can also collect the thawing juice and turn it into a delicious strawberry syrup or coulis!
