Notes about this recipe

    Made this with swerve alt sugar, vegan butter and sour cream- did use eggs and mix of date sugar and real sugar for topping. Used half as much cane sugar for maceration - my berries had been frozen an I allowed to mostly thaw at room temp before quartering. It was a delicious pie and shape held up well after pie cooled. I agree that it needs more time in oven than recipe indicates, at least my oven. Bottom and top lattice could have used more browning. This is a keeper in my book, but I’ll hold out for the best strawberries of the season and freeze them.

    This is a tasty pie! It's not too sweet and even questionable off -season supermarket strawberries taste good here. This is the first time I tried this crust. Next time I will add a few more minutes at the higher temperature so the bottom crust gets darker. The lattice was delicious- maybe the best part of the pie?
