After I showed you this picture of the strawberry pies that Kelli and I made when Ragbrai (the bicycle tour across Iowa) through, I got a few questions.
One comment was that the person had never heard of a baked strawberry pie. Most pies that are strawberry usually are not baked. There are glazed strawberry and also jello strawberry pies. For us, we did baked strawberry and I think it’s really good.
Another reader asked for the recipe.
This is my recipe. Long ago I used to clip recipes out of the newspaper Iowa Farmer Today. They always had awesome recipes. At the time I clipped it I was really trying to learn to make pie. I kept all the recipes in a three ring binder. This particular recipe got used so much I started keeping it in the outer clear sleeve and that’s where it has stayed.
Well the ironic thing about the recipe is that the magazine was doing a spread on a lady who makes pies for Ragbrai…and this is the recipe I used to make pie for Ragbrai this year.
Here’s a close up of the recipe. It says Rhubarb pie but I substitute any and everything with it. I’ve made it with pears….blueberries…half of one fruit and half of another. It turns out every time. Sometimes I leave out the cinnamon. In this case for strawberry pie I did leave it out.
Baked strawberry pie is really good so if you haven’t, give it a try. We all like it at our house.
