Froberg's & Strawberry Cream Pie!

Good evening folks!

This weekend me & my wonderful fiance spent our Saturday morning picking strawberries from a local farmer’s market, Froberg’s.

Buckets only cost a dollar & you’re free to roam their fields for luscious, ripe strawberries.

Not to mention this gorgeous, giant oak tree in the middle of the berry fields.

If you’re in the Houston area, be sure to check it out here. If you do stop by, don’t forget to grab some homemade fried pies to snack on. They are my absolute favorite treat!

They grow lots of stuff other than strawberries too. There’s photo ops for the kids & fresh kettle corn. Who can resist the smell of that stuff? Well I can, I don’t like kettle corn, but most people can’t!

Handpicked strawberries & old tractors? I mean really y’all. Who can resist?

You’re dying to know what I did with all these strawberries right?

Luckily, I’m here to share. 😉

Fresh Strawberry Cream Pie that is!

It’s just as delicious as it looks.

You’re going to need some strawberries, 2 cups to be exact.

SONY DSC

Plus 2 T. cornstarch, 1 c. sugar, 1/4 c. strawberry gelatin mix, 1 frozen pie crust, 8 oz. cool whip, & 1c water.

**I made 2 pies in these photos fyi. Feel free to do the same.

SONY DSC

First, prick your pie crust all over & up the sides. Then bake it according to package directions.

You can totally make your piecrust homemade too if you want to be an overachiever.

While that’s baking, slice the tops off all the berries. Or hull them or whatever you prefer to do to get rid of the green, leafy stuff.

Then you’ll need to slice your berries. A handy dandy slicer makes it easy peasy. But you can slice them pretty quick by hand if needed.

Like I said, you need 2 cups. Aren’t strawberries so photogenic!?

SONY DSC

Whisk together the sugar & cornstarch in a saucepan.

SONY DSC

Turn the heat on to medium high & pour in a cup of water. Stir constantly.

SONY DSC

Remove from heat & stop stirring when it becomes thick & clear like this.

SONY DSC

Add 1/4 c. gelatin. I used an entire small package for 2 pies. It may have been running a little over 1/2 c.

SONY DSC

Mix that all up & let it cool.

SONY DSC

Dump the sliced strawberries into your pie crust.

SONY DSC

If you can’t wait for your mixture to cool, sit it in a bowl of ice to speed things up.

SONY DSC

Pour the glaze over the strawberries & place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Top with cool whip & keep chilled till serving time.

I’m actually eating a leftover slice right now! I must tell you how good it is! Seriously, go make your own!

PS- We’ve been at this strawberry pickin’ thing for 4 years now, our longest standing tradition.

Can’t find a photo of year 1, but here’s year 2!
