Strawberry Pie

You can make or but a pie crust. Bake the crust and set aside.

Make the Crust

In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and lemon juice to create a slurry.

Make the Slurry

In a large saucepan add the slurry, a heaping cup of strawberries, and sugar and cook over low-medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, I use a potato masher to slightly mash some of the berries to create more of a sauce

Add Strawberries and Sugar

The strawberry sauce will change from a milky color to a translucent color. Stir in the vanilla extract then set aside to cool.

Add the remaining strawberries and slice them in half or quarters so they are smaller, more bite-size pieces, and mix to combine. Pour strawberry filling into the pie crust and spread it into an even layer.
