Haussner's Famous Strawberry Pie Recipe

Lost and finally found!

May 29, 2019

The strawberries are ripe and ready, how about a strawberry pie? Here is a good recipe. I remember Haussner’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 Haussner’s. They had anything and everything on the menu but one of the most popular, was the Strawberry pie!

The Baltimore Favorite: Haussner’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.
