Summer Strawberry-Lemon Pie

This pie was delicious. Who doesn’t love fresh strawberry pie? I mean seriously? I loved the big juicey strawberries, hint of lemon to brighten things up and the flaky pie crust. It was all heaven. I pretty much ate the whole thing myself because I couldn’t keep from opening the fridge and taking a bite every time I walked by it.

I also loooooove finding new products that are better and make my life easier. I used Cornabys Ultra Gel. Friends, so much better than cornstarch! It worked like a charm to thicken things up. Have you tried it? You totally should. I hate if I can taste cornstarch in my food. HATE IT! Loved that the ultra gel didn’t have that starchy flavor. Loved it.

Summer Strawberry-Lemon Pie

Flaky crust, juicy berries and just a hint of lemon makes this pie one of our favorite summer desserts.

Ingredients

  • Recipe by me
  • 2 Quarts Fresh Strawberries, sliced in half
  • 6 Tablespoons Ultra Gel
  • 1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
  • Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • 2 pie crusts or one deep dish Pie Crusts baked

Instructions

  1. Smash 1/4 of the berries with a pastry cutter.
  2. Mix the lemon juice, zest, smashed berries, sugar and all but 1/2 Cup of the water in a saucepan. Bring the pan to medium heat and begin to cook through. Mix the 1/2 cup of water with the ultra gel and add to the saucepan. Let simmer until thickened, remove from the heat.
  3. Mix the strawberries and sauce together and dump in the pie crust. Turn over the top berries so that no insides of the berries are showing.
  4. Chill for a few hours (it took mine 2 hours) and enjoy!

Notes

**If you live in Utah you should for sure check out Cornabys. They will be selling products at Harmons and oh my goodness, you must try the jams. The raspberry lemonade is to die for!
