I find it strange that I don’t enjoy fresh strawberries but love everything else that has strawberries in it. Because of this, I am always trying out recipes where I can enjoy my strawberries without eating them as they are. This is a recipe that I was given by a friend who is a professional chef, and it’s one that he also uses at his restaurant.

  • Filling

Instructions

  1. Put the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Cut the butter and shortening into the flour. Process a few seconds until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  2. Drop by drop, add the water, processing briefly. The whole process should take about 20 to 30 seconds. Wrap and chill for an hour.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator, and let stand for 15 minutes before rolling. You can double this up for a top and bottom crust.
  4. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and 7-up until creamy. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until the mixture becomes thick.
  5. When this mixture becomes thick, cool to room temperature, and add a couple of drops of red food coloring.
  6. Wash and cut the strawberries into quarters or smaller, depending on how large they are. Sprinkle a teaspoon or two of sugar on the strawberries, and place them into the shell.
  7. Pour the cooled 7-up mixture over the strawberries. Allow this to set for a few minutes. Serve with plenty of whipped cream.

Notes

  • Strawberry pie served with whipped cream tastes fantastic and delicious. And looks yummy too.
