Fresh Strawberry Pie

A fresh strawberry pie is the perfect summer dessert. This pie is made with a pastry crust but you could use a graham cracker crust. This pie is made without jello and just uses the fruit to naturally gel the pie filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 All Butter Pie Crust pre-baked and cooled
  • 5-6 cups fresh strawberries about 2 pounds
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Whipped cream for garnish

Instructions

  • Measure out two cups of berries, wash and hull them, then crush them with a potato masher.
  • Add the crushed strawberries, sugar, water, and cornstarch to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until it boils. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat. Cool completely before continuing. (You can also make this the day before.)
  • To assemble the pie, hull and slice the remaining strawberries and place them in the pie crust. Pour the cooled strawberry filling over the top. Chill for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving. Top with fresh whipped cream before serving.
  • This pie is best eaten the same day its made. It will get weepy if refrigerated overnight.
