Fresh Strawberry Pie

Happy Spring! Our U-pick market will be opening on May 22, 2015 for strawberry season. U-pick strawberries are $1.60/pound and pre-picked strawberries are $2.40/pound. We can’t wait to see you on the farm!

Nothing is sweeter than a fresh, Oregon strawberry. They are only available for about 3 weeks each year so make sure you take advantage before they are gone! This fresh strawberry pie is a crowd-pleaser  and is guaranteed to make friends at the next summer BBQ.

Pie Crust
Graham Cracker Crust

1 8oz block of cream cheese (room temperature)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4-5 cups fresh strawberries

1 cup crushed strawberries
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 cup water

First, prepare and bake your crust. Allow to cool completely.

Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Spread evenly over the cooled crust.

Make glaze: in a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, crushed berries and water. Stir constantly over medium heat; bring to boil. Keep stirring until the mixture is thick. Remove from stove and let cool.

Slice your strawberries and place in your pie crust. Spoon cooled glaze over the top and serve immediately. (If not serving immediately, store glaze in the refrigerator. Add glaze just before pie is eaten.)
