Bavarian Strawberry Pie Recipe

A coconut crust and pretty fluffy filling make this gluten free dessert special!

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups flaked coconut

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced

3/4 cup sugar

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

1/2 cup cold water

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine coconut and butter.  Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch pie plate.  Bake at 300 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned (over edges loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary).  Cool on a wire rack.

In a large bowl, combine strawberries and sugar; let stand for 15 minutes.  In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute.  Cook and stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved; stir in lemon juice.  Stir into strawberry mixture.  Cool to room temperature.  Fold in whipped cream.  Pour into crust.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before slicing.

Domata Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Pie

I call this “Not My Mother’s Lemon Meringue Pie” for two reasons.  One, it’s gluten free.  I don’t think we ever even heard of gluten when I was growing up.  Secondly, in over 50 years of marriage, my mother made only one Lemon Meringue Pie.  She baked it as a newlywed.  I’m told my Dad said “It’s good, but not as good as my Mom’s”.  He was young and foolish… and hence Lemon Meringue Pie-less thereafter.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup white sugar

2 tablespoons Domata Recipe Ready Flour

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups water

2 lemons, juiced and zested

2 tablespoons butter

4 egg yolks, beaten

1 (9 inch) Gluten Free pie crust, baked (click here for recipe)

4 egg whites

6 tablespoons white sugar

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. To Make Lemon Filling: In a 4-cup microwave safe bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cornstarch, salt, water, lemon juice and lemon zest. Microwave on high until boils, add butter and mix hot mixture with egg yolks, return to microwave and bring to a boil again.  Pour filling into baked pastry shell.
3. To Make Meringue: In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy.  Add sugar gradually, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over pie, sealing the edges at the crust.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until meringue is golden brown.

Cherrypielowres It is our family tradition to have pie at 3:14 on National Pie Day (January 23rd).  Although,this pie would be great any time!

This is my first attempt at making a lattice crust pie.  I’m quite pleased with the results!
