If you’ve ever searched The Recipe Rebel for pie recipes, you’d see that my selection is actually pretty slim. I’ve got a No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Cream Pie, one Pumpkin Pie, one Chocolate Pie and some Cranberry Apple Pies, and that’s about it.

The reason is that I’ve always been a little more into cake, cookies, cheesecake, or brownies than pie. And since I find pie a little labor intensive, it just doesn’t happen that often.

But sometimes there’s just nothing else that’s as good a canvas as pastry for fresh summer fruit. And if I can top said pie in brown sugar streusel?? I’m a yes.

I’m not really great at making pie crust really pretty, which is another reason why the streusel really works for me. I can load up the filling so you can’t really see how ugly the bottom crust is, and then just haphazardly sprinkle my streusel over top the strawberries. No one will ever know if your pie skills are as lacking as mine are! I promise πŸ˜‰

Strawberry season is super short here (we get maybe a couple weeks of fresh local strawberries!) so you can be sure that I’ll be working on an adaptation for frozen berries soon — you’d just need to add a little more corn starch to thicken the juices as they run out — but for now, make good use of those fresh berries while you’ve got them!

NOTES:

  • This pie crust recipe is very slightly adapted from Martha Stewart. It’s super simple, even for someone who’s not great at pie!
  • If you want to mix up your filling and add a variety of berries, feel free! Just about anything should work in this recipe. A little rhubarb would also be great!
  • I added a few more berries to the recipe after photographing it, so your layer of berries will be a little thicker than shown, but there is still a great strawberry-to-streusel ratio going on!

Ingredients

Pie crust

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold
  • 3-4 tablespoons ice cold water

Filling

  • 2 lbs strawberries hulled and halved or quartered
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch

Streusel

  • 1/2 cup butter cold
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 115g
  • 1 cup large rolled oats (not steel cut, not instant) 110g
  • 1/2 cup flour (all purpose or whole wheat) 62g

Instructions

  • Pie crustIn a medium bowl, stir together flour, salt and sugar. Cut butter into cubes and cut into the flour mixture until crumbly, using a pastry cutter or a fork, or your hands!
  • Add just enough cold water so that a dough forms, working the dough with your hands until it comes together. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes (or even overnight!).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out pie crust on a cool surface, slighlty larger than your pie plate. Place in pie plate and trim edges (go all fancy if you must!).
  • FillingStir together strawberries, sugar and corn starch and place in pie crust.
  • StreuselIn a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, oats and flour with a pastry cutter, fork or your hands until crumbly. Mixture will resemble an oatmeal cookie dough — that’s okay!
  • Top strawberries with streusel mixture, breaking into small chunks with your hands and pressing down onto the berries slightly.
  • Place pie plate on a baking sheet (to catch any drips!) and bake for 45-55 minutes, until golden brown on top (cover with tin foil if it browns too quickly) and berries are bubbly and thickened. Serve immediately or let cool to room temperature. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

    Yum!!! We tried this at the beginning of the pandemic and I’m about to make it again (for the 5th time!) It’s my new favorite fruit pie! Thank you for sharing your recipe 😊

    I just made this, using half rhubarb/half strawberries and swapping a pre-made pie crust (Pillsbury) and it turned out delicious! I did cover with foil towards the end and would put a baking sheet under it next time because mine bubbled over a little bit. So so tasty!! Can’t wait to make it again πŸ˜€
