Lisser Sue's Strawberry Pie (Fruit Juice Sweetened)

Lisser Sue's Strawberry Pie (Fruit Juice Sweetened) created by mliss29

I've been thinking about this pie for a long time and when I saw 4 pound packages of strawberries for $4.99 at the store I knew today was the day! This is inspired by Recipe #262164 and Recipe #280726. You can also make the strawberry layer with 12 ounces of white grape juice concentrate and add food color. It's a little sweeter that way. I used 3 drops of the neon pink and 3 drops of red and got a really nice color.

Ready In:
20mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 quart strawberry, trimmed and quartered
  • 12 ounces apple juice concentrate (I used apple-kiwi-strawberry but Zaar wouldn't allow that description)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 8 ounces neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons white grape juice concentrate
  • 1 pie crust, baked

directions

  • Mix strawberries through cornstarch and cook over medium heat, bringing to a boil then reducing heat.
  • Cook for 5 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking.
  • Separately combine the softened cream cheese and grape juice concentrate in a food processor.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture into an already-baked pie shell.
  • Top with the cooked strawberry mixture.
  • Chill before serving.

    Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I chose this recipe for Zingo as I found the recipe very interesting. I am used to doing placing uncooked strawberries in the pie but this is a very nice way to do it also. I made some fresh shortcrust pastry for this. The whole family really enjoyed this pie. Thanks for a lovely recipe :)

    This was a really nice pie, the only problem I had was with the directions. It doesn't say when to use the 12oz of apple juice concentrate or when to add the pinch of salt. I figured it went with the strawberries. I used a graham cracker pie shell I had as that is what I prefer. Reviewed for ZWT4

    Don't think I've ever had a strawberry pie where the strawberrys were actually cooked (well, other than a piece or two, ages ago, of strawberry/rhubarb pie)! This pie is WONDERFUL! I even managed to find the apple/kiwi/strawberry juice concentrate, so that was great! I did make this in a ready-to-bake pie crust, but another time would make my own! Thanks for your recipe!
