The kids and I went and picked strawberries yesterday at Good & Miner strawberry fields in Lebanon, came away with 21 pounds for 21 dollars, you can't beat that.:)
Rewarded myself with a LARGE slice of Strawberry pie last night and again for lunch. Here is the recipe if your interested.
- 1 9" Crust or Graham cracker crust
- 6 cups strawberries, hulled makes 2 graham cracker crust pies or 1 deep dish pie
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: 4 hours
Bake at 400 degrees until light brown and crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Cool completely. Mash enough strawberries to measure 1 cup. Mix granulated sugar and cornstarch in a heavy saucepan and stir in strawberries. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Cook and stir for 1 minute and then remove from heat, stir in vanilla, and cool. Beat cream cheese with powdered sugar, lemon juice, until smooth and spread in cooled pie crust. Slice remaining strawberries and arrange over pie. Pour cooked and cooled strawberry mixture over the whole strawberries and chill for 3-4 hours or until set. Refrigerate any remaining pie.
