  • All-purpose flour
  • 2 (14.1-oz.) boxes store-bought pie crust (4 circular pie crusts total)
  • 3 pounds strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest
  • 1 large egg
  • Crystal sanding sugar, for topping (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. 
  • Lightly flour your work surface then stack two of the circular-shaped pie crusts on top of one another and roll them into a rectangle measuring 12x17 inches. Transfer the dough into a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan, leaving the edges untrimmed. 
  • In a large bowl, stir together the strawberries, sugar, cornstarch and lemon zest. Transfer the strawberries into the prepared pie crust. 
  • Lightly flour your work surface again then use various cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the two remaining pie crusts. (Scraps can be re-rolled.) Arrange the shapes atop the strawberries in a single layer.
  • Using your fingers, crimp the pie crust around the edges. 
  • Whisk the egg then brush it all over the top and sides of the pie. Top the pie crust with sanding sugar (optional). 
  • Bake the pie for 28 to 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and cooked through. 
  • Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for 30 to 40 minutes until the juices have set. Slice and serve.
