The Old Boy's Strawberry Pie

Rated as 4.58 out of 5 Stars

"This is a summertime tradition in my family, and we have NEVER tasted, (or even seen), a strawberry pie like it! You will LOVE this. 'The Old Boy' is my dad, but my mom remembers her grandmother making a pie like this when she was young."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place a drip pan on lowest shelf to catch pie juices.
  2. To Make Topping: In a medium bowl, mix until fluffy the 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup flour, butter, and nutmeg.
  3. Place cleaned strawberries in a deep bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and cornstarch. Gently coat berries with this mixture; be careful not to crush berries.
  4. Pour berries into prepared pie crust mounding them in the middle; mounding is necessary as the berries will sink as they bake. Cover berries with crumb topping and top crumbs with about 15 pea-sized blobs of butter. Wrap edges of pie crust with foil to prevent burning.
  5. Bake pie in preheated oven for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake for an additional 40 minutes. When there are 10 minutes left of baking, sprinkle a little extra sugar over crumb topping and then finish baking.

A pie that doesn't turn out is worthy of *no* stars. Not even if the topping was good, which this was. I should have expected it. A half cup of flour and a tablespoon of cornstarch is waaaaay t...

This pie was very easy and very sweet! I thought the crumble topping might taste better made with brown sugar?! It seemed to harden up a lot and not really "crumble". I may try brown sugar next...

Absolutely delicious! I cut down on the sugar just a bit after reading reviews. I was unsure as to what to do with the leftover cornstarch/flour mixture once the berries were coated, so I toss...

This is a great recipe. I go pick fresh strawberries at the local u-pick berry farm and then use them to make this pie. I made one and brought it to work and my co-workers loved it! Helpful hin...

This pie is fantastic!! I added blueberries and turned it into a fresh berry pie. The crumb topping is to die for!

This pie looked very nice and bubly coming out of the oven. I followed the advice of another reviewer and did not mound the strawberries so much, I'm glad I spread the berries out a bit. It to...
