Easy Press Strawberry Pie is made with juicy strawberries, a sweet glaze, served with whipped cream. No rolling the easy press pie crust!
3Tbsp.dry strawberry gelatin
2pintsfresh strawberries, sliced
Sprigs of basil for garnish
2cupsheavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk oil and milk together with a fork. Mix in the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, and salt. Mix with a fork until it forms a ball and is well mixed.
Press the dough into a pie pan, pushing it evenly into the corners and up to the rim. With your fingers, pinch the crust with your left hand from the inside out, and push in the middle with your righthand index finger to make a fluted look. Do this around the entire rim of the pie crust. Put a few pokes in the bottom of the crust with a fork. Bake 15-18 minutes or until done. Remove from the oven and cool.
In a medium saucepan, stir together sugar, water, and cornstarch. Cook on high, stirring constantly, until thick and clear. Allow to slightly cool. Stir in strawberry gelatin until dissolves. Let glaze cool. Slice strawberries into pie crust. Pour cooled glaze over berries. Refrigerate and serve the same day. Serve with whipped cream.
Whipped Cream: Beat the cream until it forms peaks. Add in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat for another 20-30 seconds until blended. Serve on top of the pie!
