The library has shelves of cookbooks, so Reference Librarian, Ann Vogl, decided to check one out in order to make strawberry pie. There were several to choose from, but she chose a simple recipe from:
Country Pies: A Seasonal Sampler by Lisa Yockelson. Located on the 3rd floor TX773 .Y63 1988.
The Glazed Strawberry Pie recipe is on page 112 and it was super simple. Only 4 ingredients – strawberries, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch for the filling.
Ann took the easy way out and used a refrigerator crust, but there is a pie crust recipe in the book as well. The pie filling was easy to make. Crush two cups of strawberries and mix with lemon juice. Mix the sugar and cornstarch, then fold into the crushed berries. Cook on the stove until thickened. Let this cool to room temperature and fold into the small whole berries and then pour into a cooled crust. The only baking was for the crust, so the house didn’t get too warm. (You'll need to check out the book to get the full recipe).
The pie was put in the refrigerator overnight and served at room temperature the next day with whipped cream, if so desired. Ann shared with the rest of the staff and people thought it was quite tasty.
You could probably use part of the recipe to make strawberry jam.
