You really can make a strawberry pie in 15 minutes (excluding baking time), even if you don’t have any experience.  There are four easy steps.

Step #1: Mix the Dough.

Prep time: 2 minutes

Use a just-add-water pie crust mix.  Mix in a stand-type mixer just until the dough ball comes together.

Step #2: Form and Bake the Crust.



Prep time: 4 minutes

Roll the dough to a scant 1/4 inch, more like 3/16, lift the dough into your pie pan and form the edge of the crust as shown.

Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and cover the bottom with pie weights  or beans to keep bubbles from forming.  Bake for about 15 minutes at 375.

Step #3: Hull and Slice the Berries.

Step #4: Spoon on the Glaze.
