There are a few certainties for me every single day.
I will eat something delicious, someone will make me laugh out loud, Paul will pinch my bottom, Haley will absolutely blow me a kiss before bedtime, Trevor will tell me he loves me…and rest assured, he will also ask for strawberries.
Strawberries. They can’t grow fast enough. And I can’t buy enough of them. We go through them like breathing.
So when OXO asked if I wanted to test out their new huller (which is awesome, btw. Perhaps one of the most useful and effective tools, ever!)…
and receive a flat of Driscoll’s berries…
… I laughed. Joyously, of course. Um, ya, I want to be a part of it!
Okay, but back to this pie. It’s so freaking good.
You can serve it warm or cold, but it turns into more of a crisp or crumble if you don’t allow it to chill before slicing. Your choice. Goodness knows, I’ve succumbed to not waiting before.
These are all the OXO tools I used to make my pie a reality:

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 90 minutesIngredients
• 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
• 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/8 teaspoon of salt
• 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
• 6 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
• 1 cup sugar
• 4 tablespoons cornstarch
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 1 (9-inch) prepared pie crustDirections
For the crumble topping – in a medium bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Work in the butter with a pastry blender, until large moist clumps form. Cover and chill until ready to use.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in middle. In a large bowl, toss strawberries with sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Pour into pie shell; sprinkle with crumble topping. Place pie on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.
Bake until topping is browned and crust is lightly browned, about 1 1/2 hours. (If topping or crust begins to brown too quickly, cover with foil.) Cool completely and place in the refrigerator for several hours to set.
