Instructions

For the Pie Crust:

 

Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the cold, cubed

butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles

coarse crumbs.

Add Water: Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing until the dough begins to

come together. Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Roll Out Dough: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough

to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Transfer the dough to the pie dish, trim any excess, and crimp the edges. Prick

the bottom with a fork.

Bake Crust: Line the crust with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15-

20 minutes, remove the weights and parchment, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until

golden brown. Let it cool completely.

For the Filling:

 

Prepare Strawberries: In a large bowl, toss the hulled and halved strawberries with 1/4 cup of sugar.

Let them sit for about 30 minutes to release their juices.

Make the Glaze: In a medium saucepan, whisk together the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar and

cornstarch. Add the water and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens

and becomes clear. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and vanilla extract. Let it cool

slightly.

Combine with Strawberries: Add the strawberries to the saucepan with the glaze and gently stir to

coat them evenly.

Assemble the Pie:

 

Fill Crust: Pour the strawberry mixture into the cooled pie crust, spreading it out evenly.

Chill: Refrigerate the pie for at least 2 hours to allow the filling to set.

For the Topping:

Whipped Cream: Before serving, top the pie with whipped cream.
