11 steps

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

  • In a bowl, prepare the crust by combining all the crust ingredients.

  • Lightly grease an 8-inch round pie pan, otherwise everything will stick.

  • To make the crust, spread the oatmeal mixture over the bottom of the pan and press down firmly.

  • Bake at 180°C (350°F) for 10 minutes and set aside. It’s already going to start smelling delicious. Your challenge: resisting the urge to taste the oatmeal mixture.

  • Set over medium heat and cook for 12 minutes or until the fruit starts to break down.

  • Remove from the heat and then stir in the cornstarch and gelatine.

  • Pour the strawberry filling with no added sugar into the prepared crust.

  • Bake for 30 minutes.

  • Your kitchen will smell of pure happiness and … everybody will be asking you for the recipe.

History

Yes, this is the famous recipe that was published in the Journal de Montréal and the Journal de Québec newspapers!

 

This is a strawberry cookie-pie. I beg your pardon? A cookie-pie? Yes, because the crust tastes just like oatmeal cookies and you don’t need a rolling pin to make it. There’s no added sugar in this recipe because it’s sweetened entirely with date puree, and this strawberry cookie-pie is just as decadently delicious served cold, at room temperature and even warm with a little scoop of ice cream.

 

High in fibre (because it’s sweetened with date puree, of course), this summertime treat can just as easily be eaten for breakfast as it can for dessert. How amazing is that? Why have a called it a Fairy Tale instead of a pie? Because it tastes far too good and is far too healthy to be true. That’s the magic of date puree.
Bon appétit!

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!

Madame Labriski, which dates do you use to make your puree?

I’ve been asked that question so many times that I decided to offer the actual dates used to make my date puree sold in grocery stores. How cool is that? Plus, these ones are date halves… to make life easier for you!

What do I do if I’m using a convection oven?

Set the oven to 160°C (325°F) instead of 180°C (350°F) and bake for the same specified length of time.
