There's no better way to celebrate springtime than with a big ole slice of fresh, sweet strawberry pie.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. To prepare crust, place wafers in a food processor, and process until finely ground.
  3. Add butter, 2 tablespoons sugar, and orange rind, and pulse 10 times or just until wafers are moist.
  4. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray.
  5. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes; cool on a wire rack.

  7. Combine mashed strawberries and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Press the strawberry mixture through a sieve into a bowl, and reserve 1 cup strawberry liquid (add enough water to measure 1 cup, if necessary).

This is an excellent pie, perfect for this strawberry season. The crust is wonderful, too. It goes well with the strawberries. Made for ZWT3 2007.

A lite glaze covers the berries enhancing the flavor even more, all nestled in a sweet vanilla wafer crust with a hint of orange- TDF! Thanks so much for sharing. This is a keeper :) Nick's Mom
