Strawberry Cutie Pies

strawberry cutie pies 034

Inspired by the mini cherry raspberry pies in this month’s Country Living, I decided to make my own little cutie pies.  Intead of using store bought crust and canned filling, I made them from scratch.  My recipe makes two 4 1/2 inch pies.

  • 1 recipe pie dough
  • 2 cups hulled and quartered strawberries
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 heaping Tbsp cornstarch
  • pinch of sugar

Divide the dough in half, then roll out.  Place the dough in the pie pans, trim the edges and crimp.  Roll out the scraps and use a star cookie cutter to make the stars for the top, which will be baked separately.  Combine the berries, sugar and cornstarch and place in the pie shell.  Place the stars on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar.   Bake stars at 375°F for 8-10 minutes, and bake pies for 45 minutes or more until crust is browned and filling is bubbling.  Cool and top with stars.
