For the Whipped Cream Topping:

Prepare the Pie Crust:

  1. If using a pre-made pie crust, follow the package instructions for blind baking or bake the crust until it’s golden brown. If using a homemade crust, prepare and bake it according to your recipe.

Add Lemon Juice and Food Coloring: 4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and a few drops of red food coloring, if using. The color should be a vibrant red.

Combine with Strawberries: 5. Gently fold the halved strawberries into the cooked filling mixture until they are well coated.

Assemble the Pie: 6. Pour the strawberry filling into the pre-baked pie crust, spreading it evenly.

Chill: 7. Place the pie in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2-3 hours, or until the filling is set, and the pie is cooled.

Prepare the Whipped Cream Topping: 8. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.

Serve: 9. Just before serving, spread the whipped cream over the top of the strawberry filling. You can pipe the whipped cream for a decorative touch.
