Strawberry Pie, Maple Syrup and Joie de Vivre!

Strawberry Pie is the perfect pie for Spring! An easy recipe, and look at those beautiful pie crust techniques. We add a special ingredient to our homemade strawberry pie. Delicious anytime at all.I just won’t eat fresh strawberries any more without maple syrup.  The sweet tang of freshly sliced berries dripping with the rich golden silky flavour of real maple syrup, well just try it.  I guarantee you will give it a second glance.

My sweetie and I are RV travellers, and two summer ago, after a lovely long trek through the US south and out to the Maritimes, we stopped just outside of Quebec City to stay for what was supposed to be one night.

We’d had some mechanical difficulties with the RV – (that’s a whole other blog post) and I just wasn’t ready to head for home.  So we decided to stop, following a random campground sign about 30 miles west of Quebec City.

What we found was a little slice of heaven, wonderful campers who were so helpful and welcoming.

 

Once we were settled and had shared some wine with our new neighbours who had helped us back in, we received a bowl of fresh strawberries and Quebec Maple Syrup, with instructions.

 

I was a bit overcome, I must say, probably because we were just so darn tired, but that was it for me.  Strawberries must now have maple syrup.  But what would it taste like in a strawberry pie?

 

Well, remember that slice of heaven?  I found it once again.

Strawberry Pie. Joie de Vivre.  Joy of Living.

1 –  9″ pie crust shell and enough pastry dough to trim the top

Directions:

Cook the mashed strawberries in the water, bring to a boil then strain into a measuring cup.  Add enough water to make one cup.

Remove from heat and stir in the strawberries.

Put the strawberry mixture into the pie crust shell.  Roll out the scraps of pastry dough you have to decorate the top of the pie, as shown.

Before you decorate the pie however, pour 1/4 cup of maple syrup over the entire pie.

Decorate with pastry strips

Brush with egg wash

Bake in the bottom third of a 400F oven for 45 minutes.

Voila!  The best pie you will ever eat.
