Frisch’s Strawberry Pie Ingredients

The following ingredients you need for this pie recipe-

Lemon Zest ( 1 Lemon)

Take a whole lemon and gently grate the colorful outside part of the lemon. Keep them in a small bowl. Zest from one lemon is perfect for making this recipe. Lemon zest is a nice natural ingredient for an added flavor. 

Lemon Juice (¼ Cup)

Now take the same lemon that you’ve removed the zest from. And juice it. Strain the juice and pick out the seeds. We have taken 1 large lemon, and it’s sufficient for ¼ cup of juice. 

Depending on your lemon size, it can be 2 or 1 lemon. Set the lemon juice aside and get the other ingredients ready.

Strawberries (1 ½ lbs)

Take 1 1/2 pounds of strawberries and wash them nicely. Take the strawberries and hull them. After removing the hull, chop each strawberry into 4 pieces.

This recipe doesn’t require all the freshly ripped strawberries only. If you have lots of unused over-ripped strawberries, you can take them too. And these strawberries won’t damage the taste.  

Crust (1)

You can either use a store-bought crust or a homemade pie crust. Both types of pie crusts are perfect. Just a store-bought one will lessen your cooking time. 

We’ll make it ourselves so that no store-bought pie crust will be needed. Take 1 crust for this recipe. 

Cornstarch (3 Tbsp)

To make the pie filling, you must take 3 tbsp of cornstarch.  Cornstarch works as the thickening agent of pie filling. 

Cold Water (½ Cup)

Cold water is required to add with the lemon zest and lemon juice for making the filling. 

Sugar (⅓ Cup)

Since it’s a pie recipe, you must add sugar for a sweet taste. In this case, adding granulated sugar will add an additional taste and flavor.

Heavy Whipping Cream (2 Cups)

You need whipping cream to top the strawberry pie. Take 2 cups of this cream.

Vanilla Extract (2 Tsp)

Take 2 tsp of vanilla extract. 

Confectioners Sugar (¼ Cup)

You also need ¼ cup of confectioners sugar. 

Orange Liqueur (1 Tbsp)

To get the final touch or a silky look, you need 1 tbsp of orange liqueur. It will also increase the taste of your pie recipe with its orange flavor.

How to Make Strawberry Pie Filling?

Follow the given steps below, and make your strawberry pie-

Step-1

Take half of the chopped strawberries and mash them and keep half of the strawberries to decorate your pie recipe. Try separating the strawberries that are over-ripped to mash. And strawberries that are pretty fresh and colorful keep them for decoration purposes.

Step-2

Take the little bowl of lemon zest and lemon juice. Now add half a cup of cold water with them. Mix them and add cornstarch. Mix all these elements smoothly. Ensure there are no chunks in the liquid. If so, keep stirring until the chunks are mixed well. Let the liquid set aside.

Step-3

Take a deep bottom shape saucepan and add half the strawberries. Add sugar and 1 tbsp of lemon zest. Now muddle all the added ingredients along with strawberries together and mix. 

Keep mixing until it becomes a smooth mixture. Once the mixture seems smooth, ideally, let the mixture set over medium heat.

NB: You can take another new lemon and grate 1 tbsp of lemon zest if the remaining one isn’t enough. 

Step-4

So put the saucepan on the stove at medium heat and keep stirring the strawberry mixture. Continue stirring for 5 minutes so that the mixture thickens. Now reduce the heat to medium-low and let the mixture simmer for 15 minutes. 

Step-5

Reduce the liquid to half. Continue stirring, and let’s not burn the liquid or stick it to the saucepan’s bottom.

Step-6

Now add the cornstarch and lemon mixture to the strawberry liquid. This time increase the heat to medium-high and keep stirring for 10 minutes. Let the mixture thicken up properly.

Step-7

Your pie mixture is ready. Now take a small bowl and place the pie crust in it. Now take the strawberries you kept aside for decoration. Place them on the pie crust.

Step-8

Once you finished placing all the strawberry pieces, pour the thickened strawberry mixture over the chopped strawberry pieces. Keep shaking and jiggling slowly in the pie crust bowl so the mixture can get in. 

Step-9

Now for a good appearance, put some more chopped strawberry pieces over the mixture. It will make the pie look nice and attractive. Although adding strawberries on the top is totally redundant, it will give an excellent eye-catchy look to your recipe.

Step-10

This time give the final touch with orange liquor. Brush the liquor on top of the strawberries you added last. 

Step-11

Now put the bowl of strawberry pie in the fridge for at least 5 hours.

Step-12

This time, you need to make some whipped cream to spread over the pie crust. So, add heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and confectioner sugar. Keep mixing the ingredients in an eclectic mixture. You cannot make it by hand the way you want.

Step-13

Now cut the pie cake into a triangle shape and serve with the whipped cream on the top. It will taste just amazing.
