Strawberry Crumble Pie

When I saw this pie in the June 2016 issue of Food Network Magazine, I knew I had to make it as soon as possible. Usually I see things and save them for later, but with this beauty, I couldn’t wait. Luckily I had a reason to make it as a dessert for the holiday weekend. It was a huge hit!

As always, I don’t make my own pie crust, so I’ve adapted this recipe so I can cheat and use the refrigerated crust. And I don’t even buy the name brand kind, the store brand is just as good! Don’t worry, no one will know unless you tell them.

Ingredients

Refrigerated pie crust

For the topping:

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

For the filling:

2 pounds strawberries, hulled and halved

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons instant tapioca

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Pinch of kosher salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Set the dough out for about 20 minutes. Check the package for recommended time.

Make the filling: Combine the strawberries, brown sugar, granulated sugar, tapioca, lime juice, cardamom and salt in a large bowl. Stir until the sugar and tapioca are dissolved and the strawberries are evenly coated. **Milady note: It smells AMAZING!!!**

Make the topping: Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, allspice and ginger in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, work the butter into the mixture until clumpy.

Ease the dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold the overhanging dough under itself and crimp the edges with your fingers or a fork. Spread the strawberry filling in the crust and sprinkle evenly with the crumble topping.

Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake until the crust is golden brown and the juices are bubbling around the edge, about 1 hour. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely, at least 4 hours.

Serve at room temperature with some ice cream or whipped topping! Yum! Summer is here!
