One downside about making this recipe was that this is not the time of year to get quality strawberries. I bought some at a local market and it only took eating one to return them to the store. Blech! Thankfully I was able to get some nice ones the next day, and I set out to make the pie:).
Strawberry Sour Cream Pie
You will need:
- 1 prepared pie crust
- 1 quart fresh strawberries
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/4 cup sugar, reserve 1 tbsp
- dash salt
- 1 cup sour cream, not non fat
Gently fold in the strawberries.
Pour mixture into the pie shell and spread around, without packing down. There should be spaces throughout the filling. Take the tbsp of sugar and sprinkle over top.
Broil the pie for 2-3 minutes to allow the top to brown. Unfortunately my broiler does not work, so I wasn't able to do this step. Instead, I let the pie cool completely and then I made some whipped cream and piped it on top, to hide the paleness hah.
I put it back in the fridge until dinner at my parents. The first bite took me aback. I wasn't sure what to think. It was creamy, it was custardy....it was...delicious!
As you can see, everyone else thought so too. I managed to polish off the leftovers over the next 3 days:).
