Summer brings with it lots of patriotic celebrations from Memorial Day and July 4th to wrapping up the season with Labor Day! I wanted to share a simple + sweet recipe for strawberry pies, patriotic style! They’re perfect for a casual family dinner or cute enough for a big BBQ bash! You can personalize them (blueberries would be a great blue alternative) or keep with the recipe below. Either way, they’re sure to be a hit. I love strawberries (and I’ve been growing them on my deck) so I used those! Pie crusts make the cute stars on top. See full recipe below…
You could also make these in mini pie tins too (if you’re headed to a party, for example) or use ramekins like I did. You could even let kids cut out their initial or other shape from the pie crust.
Patriotic Strawberry Pies!
- 1 refrigerated pie crust
- 2 1/2 cups strawberries
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- dash of salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Chop up strawberries until diced.
Toss strawberries with flour, sugar, corn starch, lemon juice, and salt.
Fill ramekins with pie filling and bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
Thaw pie crust and cut out star shapes. Remove ramekins from oven and add stars. Return to oven for 10-15 minutes or until stars are golden brown.
Let cool (filling is hot!) and enjoy!
