Fresh Strawberry Pie

All summer long I am craving fresh fruit! There’s just something perfect about a sweet and tart and juicy piece of fruit when it is hot outside. So, naturally I am obsessed with this Fresh Strawberry Pie. This pie makes a great addition to any BBQ, potluck, dinner party. Your friends and family will be begging you for the recipe!

Step-By-Step Instructions

  • First you want to start with your pie crust. You can make this step as involved or as easy as you want. I usually use our Perfect Pie Crust recipe, but I have definitely used store-bought pie crust before. No judgement here! Bake up your pie crust and let it cool while you make the filling.
  • Hull and slice your strawberries. Take about one cup of the berries and lightly crush them. Add them to a pot with ¾ cups water.
  • Bring to a boil and let boil for 3 minutes. Remove the berries from the juice, and leave the juice in the pot. Whisk in the cornstarch and sugar. Simmer until it becomes thick. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the rest of the sliced berries to a large bowl. Pour the glaze over the berries and mix until the berries are coated.
  • Pour the filling into the pie crust. Refrigerate until the filling sets, about 4 hours at least.
  • Top with whipped cream or ice cream and serve.
