Strawberry Satin Pie recipe

Turn out a truly terrific pie with those first strawberries of the season. Start with a layer of toasted almonds in a tender pie shell. Add the creamiest vanilla filling you’ve ever tasted, and top with plump strawberries. Finish off with a shiny red glaze and a fluff of whipped cream. One look, one delicious bite — you’ll forget all about mere strawberries and cream. This pie is a dazzler!


1 baked 9-inch crust (see recipe below)
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Creamy Satin Filling (see recipe below)
3 cups fresh strawberries
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
Few drops red food coloring
Whipped cream


Cover bottom of cooled baked crust with almonds. Fill with chilled Creamy Satin Filling (see top photograph, left). Slice 2-1/2 cups of the strawberries in half, reserving a few perfect whole berries for center; arrange berries atop filling (see second photo, left).

For strawberry glaze: Crush remaining 1/2 cup strawberries; add the water and cook 2 minutes; sieve. Mix the sugar and cornstarch; gradually stir in berry juice. Cook and stir till thick and clear. Tint red with a few drops food coloring. Cool slightly; spoon over strawberries (see bottom picture, left). Refrigerate till serving time. Top with whipped cream.

Thank you for preserving the original recipe and sharing it here. The original clipping is still in Mom’s recipe box, but I was out of town today and hoped to find it online . . . and was thrilled!
