Frosty Strawberry Cream Pie

Provided By: Ms. Diane W. Bradley

Pie Crust:
Cream 1/2 c. oleo with 2 tbsp. sugar. Add 1 c flour and mix. Place 1/4 c. of mixture aside and press remaining mixture in 9" pie pan. Bake pie crust and remaining 1/4 c. crumbs separately at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Strawberry Filling:
Combine 1 c. strawberries, 1 unbeaten egg white, 1/2 c. sugar, 2 tsp. lemon juice. Beat at high speed until thick and creamy, 5-8 minutes.

Provided By: Jenni A. M. Merrifield
Originally From: Better Homes And Gardens New Cookbook, 1981, p. 280

Pie Ingredients:

  - 1-1/4 cp. sugar

  - 3 tbsp. quick cooking tapioca

  - 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

  - 3 cp. rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  - 2 cp. sliced, fresh strawberries

  - Pastry for Double-Crust Pie (see below)

  - 2 tbsp. butter

Oven Temp:  375 degrees F.

Stir together sugar, tapioca, nutmeg and dash of salt. Mix rhubarb pieces and strawberry slices together. Add sugar mixture to rhubarb and strawberries; toss to coat fruit. Let fruit mixture stand for 15 minutes. Fill a pastry-lined 9" pie plate with fruit mixture; dot with butter. Adjust top crust. Seal and flute edge. Cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 degree F. oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 25 minutes more or till golden. Server Warm, plain or with vanilla ice cream. Makes 8 servings.

Double-Crust Pastry Ingredients: (p 288)

  - 2 cp. all purpose flour

  - 1 tsp. salt

  - 2/3 cp. shortening or lard

  - 6 to 7 tbsp. cold water

In a mixing bowl stir together flour and salt. Cut in shortening or lard until pieces are the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tbsp. of the water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push to side of bowl. Repeat till all is moistened.

Divide dough into two parts, forming each into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, take one of the halves and flatten the dough with hands. Roll dough from centre to edge, forming a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Wrap pastry around rolling pin. Unroll onto a 9" pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful no to stretch pastry. Trim pastry even with rim. For top crust, roll out remaining dough. Place desired pie filling (i.e. strawberry-rhubarb filling) into pie shell. Top with pastry for top crust. Trim top crust 1/2-inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold extra pastry under bottom crust; flute edge. Cut slits into the top crust to allow steam to escape while cooking. Bake as directed in individual recipe.

Strawberry Fruit Shake

Provided By: Kalpana Shankar
"I came up with this one on my own and it's a healthy breakfast, dessert, or snack."


  - 1.5 cup frozen berries, partially thawed

  - 1 cup plain non-fat yogurt

  - 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  - 4 tbsp. frozen pineapple concentrate

  - orange or pineapple juice (as much as needed)

Put everything except orange juice in blender. Start mushing; add orange juice to make everything smush properly. Don't over-smush; occasionally stop the blender push the berries down. Serve in tall drinking glasses.


Strawberry Wine

Provided by: Peter, The old strawberry grower


  - 4 to 4-1/2 lbs Strawberries

 - 1 Gallon Water

 - 2 lbs. Sugar

 - 1 tsp. Acid Blend (Do Acid Test)

 - 1/8 tsp. Tannin

 - 1/2 tsp. Peptic Enzyme

 - 1 tsp. Yeast Nutrient

 - 1 Campden Tablet (plus more tablets for each rack)

 - 1 pack Cote's de Blanc Yeast

Wash and remove the stems and leaves. Use a straining bag and fill with the strawberries. Tie the top, commence to crushing and mashing. Leave straining bag in the bucket. Add water, sugar, acid blend (do test), tannin, peptic, enzyme, and yeast nutrient . Stir well. Before you add the yeast, you will need to sterilize the must. Crush up one campden tablet and add to the must. Stir and cover for 24 hours. Now you may add the yeast. Stir well, cover and stir every day for 4-5 days. Then siphon into your 1 gallon jug, put rubber stopper on and airlock. Siphon every 2 weeks and add 1 crushed campden tablet every time you rack. It will take about 2-3 months before your wine is clear enough to bottle. You can make more than one gallon if you just multiply out the recipe to however many gallons you want to make. One pack of yeast will work for 5-7 gallons. ENJOY!

Sweet-Hot Strawberry BBQ Sauce

Provided by: Martin Tuttle

  - 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated lemon zest 

    (HINT: either use a zester or use a vegetable peeler to remove 

     the skin from the white pith then chop fine)

Strawberry Lemonade

Provided by: Paul B. Atwood
You can make a really good strawberry drink by putting a cup or two of strawberries in a blender with lemonade. You do have to be careful of all the seeds, though.

Boil 1 1/2 cp. sugar and 1 1/2 cp. water for five minutes. Set aside.

Hull and slice 1 pint of strawberries.

Mix remaining ingredients and form into a ball. Roll out dough. Spread with chopped strawberries. Roll up like a jelly roll. Cut in slices approximately 1 inch thick and place in a greased 13" X 9" pan. Pour syrup over rolls. Bake at 450°F for 25 - 30 minutes. Let cool.

Serve with whipping cream.

Strawberry/Fruit Granola Yogurt Dish

Provided by: Dick McCurdy
I love strawberries especially, but the wonderful flavour comes from mixing fruits. I do not use any frozen fruits but I recommend any of the following: Strawberries, Pineapple, Banana, Blueberries, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Melon, Kiwi Fruit, Apple, Pears. If you use apples and/or pears, core and slice thinly (1/8-1/4 inch) and place around the edge of the bowl standing up. This makes the holding capacity of the bowl greater! Yum-Yum!

Layer the following in a soup bowl:

  -	1/2 C Vanilla yogurt

  -	1/2 C Heartland Granola

  - 1   C Mixed Fruit (cut up to spoon size)

Basic Strawberry Frappe

Provided by: April Hechter
Sounds really simple...Tastes really good!

-   Half-fill tall glass with washed, sliced, fresh strawberries. 

  -   Add milk (low-fat or whole) just enough to cover berries.  

  -   Add sugar (or sugar substitute)**  +/-  1 tsp.

Blend in glass with wand-type hand blender, on fairly high speed, until all lumps are gone and glass has "filled up". Serve immediately.

** I prefer Equal to Sweet 'n Low -- 1 or 2 packets seems best
