    Default Strawberry Crunch Pie Recipe

    My nanny (grandmother) always made this when I was growing up. It is super easy and everyone loves it!!

    Ingredients:
    1 cup plain flour
    1 stick butter, melted
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    1 pint strawberries, sliced and drained (can use frozen but thaw)
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1 can sweetened condensed milk (like Eagle Brand)
    1- 8 oz container of Cool Whip (I use the "extra creamy" version)

    Crust:
    Combine butter, flour, and nuts. Press into bottom and up sides of a pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool completely.

    Filling:
    Combine lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk. Add strawberries, mixing gently. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour into cooled pie shell. Refrigerate until firm, usually 4 hours.

    This is a great summer dessert.

    You can use other berries, as well. Nanny used to make it with blackberries too. It was cool cuz it was purple then! lol.

    Strawberries are the best though.

    This recipe is fabulous and sounds very similar to one I used to make and forgot about. If it is the same one, bananas work wonderfully too~

    I will post my banana split cake recipe this weekend. It is a Nanny recipe too and was a Fourth of July staple.

    Could you use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?

    ^ I've been doing that, but I go half and half whipped cream and cream cheese because I was worried about the stability of the cream alone. I also started making the crust out of ground almonds with just a touch of Splenda and a little melted butter - like a graham cracker crust but high-protein/low-ish carb. You don't need to use even a smidge of flour! You can definitely use the pecans in the original recipe, it's just that I found them quite expensive.

    There's a similar recipe on the Cool Whip site. This one uses crushed Oreos for the crust. Strawberry Whipped Sensation
