Strawberry pie is a wonderful pie for the summer. It is served chilled with cream or ice cream and is not too heavy on the stomach.
Strawberry pie can be prepared in a variety of ways, but basically it consists of a baked shortcrust
pie shell filled with fresh strawberries and a mixture of sugar, water and cornstarch or gelatine to thicken.
The pastry is prepared and cooked beforehand and then allowed to cool before filling with the strawberry mixture. If the pastry is not cool enough, the filling could make it soggy and wet.
