5 Cups Strawberries, sliced
1/2 Cup Sugar
Pinch of Salt
2 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Cornstarch
Pillsbury Pie Crust
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
1/8 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Sprinkles (I used these)
Add the sliced strawberries to a saucepan and sprinkle the sugar & salt evenly over the top. Let sit for 15 minutes while strawberries macerate.
Turn the burner on medium heat and allow the strawberries to simmer in their juices for about 15 minutes.
While it is cooking, make your cornstarch slurry. Add 1 Tbsp cornstarch to 2 Tbsp of water in a small bowl. Whisk together with a fork until smooth, slowly pour into the strawberry mixture while stirring constantly. Continue stirring for about 5 minutes, until the filling has thickened. Turn off the burner, remove from heat, and set aside to cool slightly. Preheat oven to 375 F.
Spray your cast iron skillet or pie plate with non-stick spray. Unpackage and unroll one of the Pillsbury pie crusts and lay on the bottom of the pan. After the filling has cooled for about 10 minutes, place it on top of the crust in the pie dish. Use a spatula to make sure it is evenly spread. Add the other pie crust over the top and use a fork to seal at the edges. Cut a small “X” in the middle of the pie so it can vent.
Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until the crust is golden and filling is bubbly and thick. Allow to cool for at least two hours.
Add powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to a small bowl. Whisk together with a fork until smooth. Drizzle evenly over the top of the pie. Add sprinkles. Allow glaze to set for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving.
