My family looks forward to strawberry picking every year. There is this really cute, family-owned orchard that we go to several times a year; strawberry picking, blueberries, peaches, and apples. There is nothing better than bringing home fresh picked fruit to snack on, and of course my favorite way to use it which is to make fruit desserts like cobbler, crisps, pie……. you get my point. I’m obsessed with making fruit desserts! They’re some of my favorites.

Pile your pie crust high with strawberries. If they’re smaller I leave them whole but if they are larger I like to cut them in half. Combine a few ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. The mixture will get thick. Make sure to cool it for about 30 minutes or so. Pour that over the strawberries and then refrigerate until set.

I have nothing against using Jell-O but when you make your own strawberry gelatin mixture the flavor is out of this world! It’s only a few extra steps and it’s well worth it when you take a bite of that fresh strawberry pie that is literally bursting with strawberry flavor galore.

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust (9"), cooked and cooled
  • 6 cups fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • sweetened whipped cream, for garnish

Instructions

  • Take 1 cup of the strawberries and mash them with a potato masher, or put them in a food processor to puree/chop small. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine the sugar, cornstarch, mashed 1 cup strawberries, and water. Stir with a whisk to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once boiling, let boil for 3 minutes while stirring constantly. It will be thick. Take off the heat and let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Put remaining strawberries into the pie crust and pour the strawberry gelatin over them. Let refrigerate for several hours (6 hours) or overnight so the pie can set. Serve with sweetened whipped cream or Cool Whip.

Notes

You can make your own pie crust or buy a frozen one. Just make sure that whatever you use, that it's cooked and cooled completely.

    June 26, 2015 at 11:16 am I love strawberries and this looks so good! I've never seen Scandal, but I do have a few shows that are my guilty pleasure. I love Pretty Little Liars, I realize it's a teen soap, but I've also been watching since season one, (they are on season 7 now), so I have to keep watching! :-) My other shows don't come back on until the fall. :sigh: Maybe I should check out Scandal.

      June 26, 2015 at 2:17 pm Hi Joanna! I've heard of Pretty Little Liars but never watched it. I seem to get hooked on one series at a time. It was 24, and now it's Scandal. Darn Netflix :) I love fall shows. My fave was CSI but they cancelled that one, I did hear they are having a CSI series finale movie in the fall. Might be cool. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I'm on my way to check out your blog :)

    April 17, 2018 at 8:43 pm How long do you think I can make these prior to eating them. I am going to make them for a party on Saturday night but the only time I have to make them is Thursday night. Do you think that it’s ok to leave them untill then?

      April 21, 2018 at 1:41 pm I *think* that would be ok. The crust will probably be slightly softer and soggier because of the extended time. But, the leftovers of this pie are good for a few days after so I am sure it would be fine. Good luck and I hope it turned out for you. Sorry for the late reply...

    May 25, 2018 at 5:53 pm Curious if you think arrowroot powder would be a suitable substitution for the cornstarch? My daughter is allergic. Thanks :)

      May 25, 2018 at 10:41 pm Honestly, I don't even know what arrowroot powder is so I have no idea if it would work in this pie. So sorry I can't be of help.

          June 12, 2018 at 11:11 pm I don't even know what arrowroot is but hopefully it worked! It does take several hours to set up, preferable overnight. Good luck!

    January 25, 2019 at 1:00 pm this looks so delicious. thank you very much for having this recipe. I wrote it down after i wrote down a homemade pie crust from Sally McKenny Quin's website sally's baking addiction, it is going to be great. she even tells you how to blind bake the pie crust as well.

      May 9, 2019 at 9:06 pm I am not familiar with either one of those ingredients so I can't say for sure. If you know about them and how to use them I would say go for it and try it out :)
