Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Crust: Tutorial {SWEET}

Those beautiful locally grown strawberries sitting on your counter want to make you happy. 
 Here’s how they'll do it: Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Crust. 

The strawberries you'll find in markets at this time of the year are different from the strawberries you ate a month ago. Why? Because now they taste like REAL strawberries. Sweet and seductively succulent. 

Chocolate and strawberries are a natural combo, so I used chocolate wafer cookies to make the crust. You can also use graham crackers or shortbread if you prefer. I folded the strawberry puree into pillows of whipped egg white so the pie is light and airy. I've included a step-by-step tutorial after the main recipe. 

Just make sure you buy locally grown strawberries. If the package says the strawberries were picked in another country, put them back and wait a few weeks longer. Fresh strawberries are in season... and you know the fresher they are, the happier you'll be.

  3. Crush cookies and ⅓ cup sugar in a food processor. Crush Cookie Wafers. Blend with sugar

4. Transfer crumb mixture to a large bowl and add the melted butter. I don’t add the butter to the food processor because it can get clumpy. Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Crust

5. Press the crumb mixture into the deep-dish pie pan, including the sides (your crust will be thick). Bake 8 to 10 minutes; remove from oven and set aside to cool. Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Crust

6. Remove the stems from the strawberries. Place 12 ounces of the strawberries (about ¾ of all the strawberries) and ½ cup sugar into a food processor and purée; set aside. Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Crust

  7. Pour water into a small saucepan and sprinkle on gelatin; soften for 5-minutes. Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Crust
