Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, my favorite holiday of the year! To me, the Fourth of July is the height of summer; I look forward to it all year long. It means sunshine, pool time, family gatherings, lots of laughs, friends, outside play, fireworks, watermelon and strawberry pie – a family tradition. As I was making strawberry pie today, I decided that it was only fair that I share my easy peasy DELICIOUS recipe with my Glitter Jungle family. My momma and I have been making this recipe together since I was a kid and it’s always a big hit. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 Large container of strawberries
- 1 Pouch/Cup of strawberry glaze
- 1 Graham Cracker pie crust
- 1/3 Cup of sugar
First you’ll want to chop up your strawberries. We cut ours into thin slices, rather than big chunks.
Isn’t my tiny sous chef adorbs?!? (All the heart eyes, y’all!)
After you’ve chopped up all of your strawberries into a large bowl, then you’ll add in one package of strawberry glaze and 1/3 cup of sugar. (I know…sounds like a lot, right?! But we’re from the south and we like things sweet. It’s ok to splurge every now and then! Just do a few extra burpees tonight.)
Stir thoroughly until all of the sugar and glaze is mixed in. Then you’ll pour your strawberry pie filling into your graham cracker pie crust.
Voila! Your pie is complete. Now you’ll want to cover the pie and put it in the fridge for a few hours to chill and firm (I suggest at least 2-3 hours ahead of meal time. The longer it sets, the better.)
Other Serving Options:
Although I enjoy the pie just as it is, we have family members who love to add cool whip, vanilla ice cream and even Hershey’s spread as a topping. I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with any of these toppings!
Happy Snacking, y’all! And, most importantly, Happy Fourth of July to our great nation.
