Strawberry Pie

Easy as (strawberry) pie

Strawberry Pie
From All Recipes

Pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
3/4 C. and 1/2 C. Sugar, divided
3/4 C. and 1/2 C. Flour, divided
6 T. Butter
1 generous pinch ground Nutmeg
4 cups fresh Strawberries, hulled
1 T. Cornstarch

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Place a drip pan on lowest shelf to catch pie juices.

For topping: In a medium bowl, mix until fluffy the 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup flour, butter, and nutmeg.

For filling: Place cleaned strawberries in a deep bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix together the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and cornstarch.  Gently coat berries with this mixture; be careful not to crush berries.

Pour berries into prepared pie crust, mounding them towards the middle (they'll sink as they bake).  Cover berries with crumb topping.

Bake pie in preheated oven for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 40 minutes.
