Hausner’s Strawberry Pie

Diane's Dish

Remember Hausner’s in East Baltimore. I miss that place. When I worked in country music radio, we would take all of the country artists to eat there. Alan Jackson, Clint Black and so many others. There was a simple reason why we would go to Hausner’s. They had anything and everything on the menu but one of the most popular, was the Strawberry pie!

The Baltimore Favorite: Hausner’s Strawberry Pie

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 teaspoons strawberry flavoring

1/2 teaspoon red food color

1 1/2 cups boiling water

3 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 cup water

1 prebaked deep 9-inch pie shell

1 1/2 pints fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and kept whole if small or cut in half if large.

Make a glaze by adding sugar, strawberry flavoring and food color to boiling water in a saucepan. Add dissolved cornstarch and stir over medium to high heat until it thickens.

Whipped cream as topping ( here’s an easy recipe I use)
Heavy cream about 2 cups
2 Drops of vanilla extract
2 Tbsp of sugar
Whisk it.
