Fresh Strawberry Pie

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. I have switched my diet to improve my health.

Ever have a “What the heck moment?” I came to look at my post and half of it is missing. I don’t know what I did. But maybe I forgot to hit the save button. So here I am fixing the post after it has been posted. I am so sorry.

I can’t remember what I posted here. But I do know that I got these beautiful and sweet tasting strawberries from the local Farmer Market. They were so big, plump and juicy. The color is so deep red. The reminded me a little of wild strawberries that grow in the forests in Sweden. Smultron berries are not huge like American ones they are small but oh so tasty. They also tend to have a few more seeds than any American variety I have ever seen. In America, a Fresh Strawberry Pie in the summertime is a very popular dessert. You can get it at almost any restaurant or truck stop joint. Many older American movies scenes that are shot in diners will have a strawberry pie in their dessert display case. This is my version of what I would call an Amercian Classic.

1 graham cracker like crust or other pie crust pre-baked

1 recipe strawberry glaze

3 – 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries

There are two ways to put the pie together

1) The first way is to add the glaze to the sliced strawberries and then add to the pre-baked cooled crust.

2) Or the second way is to add a small amount of Strawberry Glaze to the bottom and sides of a pie crust. Add the remaining glaze to 3 – 4 cups of sliced strawberries. Stir until well combined. Pour the strawberries and glaze into a pre-cooked and cooled pie crust. Slice and eat Fresh Strawberry Pie

Whichever way you choose, enjoy!

    A Swedish American Pie, a great way to acknowledge and honor both countries. I will certainly make this every time I have guests who have connections to both country as well as for everyone else. The flags are the trade mark of this pie for sure. It’s the first thing I noticed after seeing the mouthwatering delicacy
    I am sooooooooo proud of you.
