Fresh Strawberry Pie with Whipped Cream

This is one of my all-time favorite pies. It features a buttery, flaky pie crust, filled with garden-fresh berries. Topped with a dollop of freshly whipped cream, summer doesn't get much better than this!

Ingredients 

Crust

  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup cold butter
  • ¼ cup ice cold water
  • Pinch of salt

Filling

  • 4 cups fresh, local, organic strawberries (divided)
  • cup raw, local honey
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp arrowroot starch
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp butter

Whipped Cream

  • 8 oz heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ¾ tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Crust

  • In a large bowl, mix the salt with the flour.
  • Cut in the butter and break it into pea sized pieces using your hands or a pastry blender.
  • When the butter is well-incorporated, add the water one tablespoon at a time. Mix the dough with your hands until it all comes together. Add more water or flour as needed.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • When the time is up, roll out the dough about ¼ inch thick on a well-floured surface. Transfer to a pie plate and press it down into the bottom. Remove the extra crust around the top and crimp the edges.
  • Take a fork and poke holes in the bottom of the crust. Then take a piece of aluminum foil and press it into the pan. Fill the pie plate with dry beans, rice, or sugar to act as pie weights. (Or you can just use pie weights if you have them).
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust begins to brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Filling

  • Take half of the strawberries and cut off the stems. Then arrange the berries on the baked piecrust, hull side down.
  • In a saucepan, put the rest of the strawberries, honey, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Cook on medium/low until combined and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter.
  • Allow the sauce to cool before pouring over the strawberries and pie crust. Chill before serving with homemade whipped cream.

Whipped Cream

  • Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks begin into form.
  • Slowly add the vanilla and sugar and continue whipping until it reaches desired consistency. Scoop a generous dollop on a slice of pie and enjoy!
