Peerless Etiquette brings you a step-by-step guide to creating a pie that will leave your guests in awe of your culinary finesse.


For the Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 3-4 tablespoons ice water

For the Strawberry Filling:

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam

  • 1 tablespoon water


Preparing the Pie Crust:

  1. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter.

  2. Cut in Butter: Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Add Ice Water: Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough just comes together.

  4. Form a Disk: Gather the dough and shape it into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  5. Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Baking the Pie Crust:

  1. Roll Out the Dough: On a floured surface, roll out the dough to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Gently place the dough in the dish, trim the edges, and crimp the edges using your fingers or a fork.

  2. Bake the Crust: Line the crust with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove the weights and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow the crust to cool completely.

Preparing the Strawberry Filling:

  1. Mash the Strawberries: Take 1 cup of strawberries and mash them using a fork or a potato masher to release juices.

  2. Combine Ingredients: In a saucepan, combine the mashed strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.

  3. Cool the Filling: Remove from heat and let the filling cool to room temperature.

Assembling the Pie:

  1. Fill the Crust: Arrange the remaining halved strawberries in the cooled pie crust.

  2. Add the Filling: Pour the cooled strawberry filling over the fresh strawberries, ensuring an even distribution.

  3. Prepare the Glaze: In a small saucepan, heat the strawberry jam and water over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.

  4. Glaze the Pie: Brush the strawberry glaze over the top of the strawberries for a glossy finish.

  5. Chill the Pie: Refrigerate the pie for at least 2-3 hours, or until the filling is set.

  6. Serve and Enjoy: Serve slices of this delicious strawberry pie with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This Strawberry Pie is an epitome of sweet indulgence, perfect for tea parties, dessert tables, or simply as a delightful treat to savor. Enjoy every bite and bask in the joy of creating a culinary masterpiece!
