  • 2 lbs fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt


  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 7 tbsp unsalted butter cold, cubed


  • Sift flour and salt together. Cut butter into cubes and place in freezer for 5 minutes to get cold.
  • Using a fork, stir butter cubes into flour mixture until well coated. Add water and use hands to work dough into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Work dough until smooth on a floured surface. Separate into two equal parts. Roll out each dough ball until as thin as a penny. Set aside.
  • Dice strawberries and remove tops.
  • Combine strawberries with sugars, lemon juice, salt and cornstarch in a large pot. Heat over medium until sugar dissolves. Let filling sit and cool for 15 minutes.
  • Press one pie crust into a pie pan. Fill with strawberry filling.
  • Cover with remaining pie crust. You can use a lattice design or cover and cut a few slits. Pinch edges together.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes at 400 degrees.
  • Remove foil and drop oven temperature to 350 degrees and finish baking for about 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
