Strawberries are the only fruit to grow its seeds on the outside! Families in 94% of NZ households eat strawberries so best you make a pie.
1 27cm pastry shell, pre-baked
2 punnets fresh strawberries
Arrange 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled side down, in cooled baked pastry shell. Make a sauce with the remaining 2 cups of strawberries:
chop berries and heat them in a saucepan with sugar, water, cornstarch and salt. Remove from heat when thickened and stir in butter. Wait for the sauce to cool and pour it over the strawberries in pastry shell.
Chill for several hours.
When you’re ready to serve, pipe, spoon or spread the whipped topping on top of the pie.
