Fresh Strawberry Pie is the best way to enjoy strawberry season. The sweet and refreshing strawberries are piled high in a rich flaky pie crust and then topped with light and fluffy homemade whipped cream.
Whenever I make this pie, I always take a slice to my dad. He loves fresh strawberry pie. I can remember as a kid going to a restaurant for his birthday and the staff bringing out a strawberry pie and singing Happy Birthday to him. Then, we all had a slice of the pie. I remember not being too impressed with it and thinking strawberry pie just wasn’t my thing. What I didn’t realize at the time is that it was the pre-made glaze that I didn’t like, not the pie itself.
Well, this recipe does not have pre-made glaze. The glaze is made from scratch and it is so simple to make! Instead of taking away from the fresh strawberry flavor like the pre-made glaze does, this glaze boosts the strawberry flavor even more.
With the combination of homemade pie crust, fresh strawberries, homemade glaze, and homemade whipped cream, this pie is a recipe for instant happiness!
