6 cups hulled and quartered strawberries (I used strawberries from Highway 19 Produce from Good Local Market.
Sweet like candy!)
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pie crust, either homemade or packaged
Flour, for rolling out pie crust
3 tablespoons butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons sparkling sugar (optional)
Heat the oven to 400F.
In a bowl, combine filling ingredients and toss to mix.
On a lightly floured piece of baking parchment, roll the pie crust out to about 14 inches in diameter. Transfer the parchment and crust to a baking sheet. Pile the filling in the center and fold the edges up over the filling, leaving about a 5-inch circle of filling showing. Place on baking sheet. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Bake until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling, about 40 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
