Strawberry Lemon Whipped Cream Pie


I'm so ready for Spring I decided to make a pretty and tasty Pie, So I got some strawberries and lemons and came home and went to cooking and baking and made this oh so pretty Strawberry Lemon Pie
It reminds me of a fresh spring day
This Recipe will make 2 pies or about 20-24 tarts

What you Need:
2 (9 inch) pie crusts, baked or tart crusts
Lemon Filling:
1/2 cup cold water
7 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 lemon, juiced and zested
1 tablespoon butter
3 egg whites
6 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Strawberry Filling:
 1 cup mashed strawberries
 3/4 cup water, or more if needed
 3/4 cup white sugar
 3 tablespoons cornstarch
 1 tablespoon lemon juice
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 4 cups sliced strawberries

How to Make it:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Bake your pie crusts and let them cool
For Lemon Filling:
Combine mashed strawberries and 3/4 cup water in a saucepan; bring to a boil and simmer for about 3
minutes. Strain juice from cooked strawberries and add enough water to make 1 cup juice. Discard
pulp.
Combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt in a saucepan; stir strawberry juice into sugar
mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until clear and thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from
heat and cool slightly. Stir sliced strawberries into strawberry sauce.     

For Lemon Filling:
In a small bowl mix cold water and cornstarch to a thin paste. In a medium saucepan bring hot water and sugar to a boil, then add cornstarch paste. Transfer this mixture to a double boiler. Cook until thick and smooth, stirring constantly, about 15 minutes. Whisk a small amount of this mixture into egg yolks, then whisk egg yolk mixture back into double boiler. Cook everything together for a few minutes longer, continuing to stir. Mix in juice and rind of 1 lemon along with butter. Set custard aside to cool.


When Pie fillings are both cool fill your pie crust with the lemon filling then top with a layer of Strawberry Pie Filling
and Top Pie with Fresh Whipped Cream
Serve and Enjoy~
