Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    *1 bag (1 lb/500 g) frozen unsweetened strawberries, sliced and thawed, can be used instead of the fresh.
  • Tip 2
    If you don't own two pie plates, purchase a disposable foil pie pan to place on top of the crust.
  • Tip 3
    Mary Howe Schwartz, from Lunenburg, MA, won first place at the 2006 Massachusetts State Fair for this recipe. She went on to place in the national Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crust Championship.
