Ingredients and Variations

STRAWBERRIES: Fresh from the garden, farmer’s market, or the local supermarket, choose berries that are bright red, sweet-smelling, and free of bruises or blemishes. Remove stems. Toss in a handful of blueberries or slices of kiwi for a fun, tropical twist.

FILLING: Strawberry jello simmered with cornstarch, water, and sugar give the filling for the strawberry pie that signature red glaze.

CRUST: Use a single pre-baked pie crust or a graham cracker crust. Even a chocolate cookie crust will do!

Pie Making Tips

Fresh is best for berries, cut them in uniform sizes to make the pie look more elegant. For best results, avoid overfilling the pie crust.

If there is extra strawberry filling, don’t let it go to waste! Save it for topping on scoops of vanilla ice cream or as a topping for pancakes and waffles.

Simple Recipe Time Savers

Save time and use a store-bought or premade baked pie crust, or even a graham cracker crust!

Make this recipe any time of year – defrost, and thoroughly drain, frozen strawberries instead of using fresh. Or fill it with canned strawberry pie filling instead of fresh berries and glaze if time is short.

Even with these simple shortcuts, this strawberry pie turns out delicious every time!
