Billy's Famous Fresh Strawberry Pie

 

Anyone from London knows the best place to get a fresh strawberry pie is Billy's restaurant downtown. Their secret? Heeman strawberries! We've got their secret recipe, here for you to prepare at home.

Yields: 1 pie

Ingredients:

  • 2 quarts/500mL fresh Heeman strawberries
  • 1 10 inch cooked pie shell

Glaze

  • 1 cup/250mL crushed strawberries
  • 1 cup/250mL sugar
  • 3 tbsp/45mL cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup/125mL water
  • 1 tbsp/15mL butter
  • 1 tbsp/15mL lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Mix crushed berries, sugar, cornstarch and water in a saucepan. Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture boils.
  2. Add the butter and lemon juice.
  3. Put remainder of the strawberries into the bottom of the cooked pie shell. Reserve some for garnish.
  4. Pour cooked glaze evenly over the whole berries in the cooked pie shell.
  5. Let stand to cool (we refrigerate ours, until we need to top the pie).
  6. Top the pie with fresh whipped cream or a good topping, then garnish with the berries that remain.
