Fresh Strawberry Pie

Fresh Strawberry Pie

My husband's coworker sent a half-flat of strawberries home with him the other day. They were for our enjoyment, but she also hinted that I send some strawberry goodness back to the office. What better way to bid a proper farewell to summer than with a treat that epitomizes the season: Fresh Strawberry Pie!

I found this recipe in my mom's Betty Crocker cookbook years ago, but ended up using the recipe solely for the fresh strawberry glaze details. I use my own pie crust recipe.  I was trying to replicate Marie Callender's fresh strawberry pie, but due to the glaze difference I like this pie even better!

Betty Crocker's Fresh Strawberry Pie Glaze



  • 1 1/2 quarts (6 cups) strawberries, hulled (includes strawberries to pile into pie crust)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water


1. Make a 9 inch pie crust and bake according to instructions. Let cool completely.

2.  In a small bowl, mash enough strawberries to measure 1 cup.  In a 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch.  Gradually stir in 1/2 cup water and mashed strawberries.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils.  Boil and stir 1 minute; cool.

3. Place remaining strawberries in pie crust.  Pour cooked strawberry mixture over top.  Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.  Store in refrigerator.

Simple and delicious= simply delicious!

We serve our pie with whipped cream!

Here's my "go to" pie crust recipe (from a past post).
