Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

EZ Very Berry Strawberry Pie


the flavor is fresh!!

1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
1 quart fresh strawberries, divided
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  • Bake single pie crust.  Cool crust.
  • Arrange half of strawberries (sliced) in baked pastry shell. 
  • Mash remaining berries and combine with sugar in a medium saucepan. Place saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  • In a small container, whisk together cornstarch and water.  Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into boiling strawberry mixture.  Reduce heat and simmer mixture until thickened, about 5(?) minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Pour mixture over sliced, uncooked berries already in pastry shell.  It 'steams' like this as hot meets cold...
  • Chill for several hours before serving.  
  • In a small bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form.  
  • Serve each slice of pie with a dollop of whipped cream.
