This Strawberry Slab Pie is a spin on my favorite fresh strawberry pie that my grandma made every summer. A fantastic dessert for any summer get together, barbecue or potluck!
I have been intending to share this fresh strawberry pie recipe for ages. It is so good, so so good.
I’ve been seeing recipes for slab pies and thought that it is the best idea ever, especially for summer cookouts. I made a quick shortbread crust that didn’t require any rolling. I will be definitely using this shortbread crust for other pies.
Strawberries have always been my favorite. This pie makes me think of the times my grandma would take us to the big strawberry fields near her house. I am sure we would eat just as many strawberries as we put in the basket.
I remember one time my cousin Stacy was with us for strawberry picking and we spotted a snake in the field. We screamed and ran like heck. I’m sure our screaming scared the snake and as it slithered away, Stacy was running right after the snake without realizing it.
I think the rest of us were calling after her but she just kept going. Eventually the snake took off in a different direction. We laughed and laughed afterwards.
We had such fun times picking peaches and strawberries. I’m sure we were way more trouble than we were worth though. Grandma’s really are the best.
I just got back from visiting my folks for my mom’s birthday. My grandma came and we had the best dinner. It was a great visit and I always go away knowing I have to do it more often. My grandma brought us a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies and we enjoyed nibbling on them all the way home.
This recipe is super simple and I love the filling. It’s so much better than the gloopy glaze that you can buy in the little containers. Made easily in a sheet pan, it is easy to take to a cookout!
If you attend any summer parties or get togethers, this is the dessert that you must make. It is light and fresh and just plain delicious. Plus the summer berries are just so bright and pretty. I just know you are going to love it!
