Making this delicious pie could not be more simple! Did I mention that it’s no bake?!

Even though it’s so easy to make, it never fails to impress! The taste is so fresh and delicious, making it a perfect dessert. And I’ve always thought it is such a pretty pie too.

How to Make Strawberry Pie

You whisk together your sugar and cornstarch with a bit of boiling water over a medium low heat with the other ingredients until it has thickened. Then, you let it cool as you arrange your strawberries how you want them in for your final pie in your pre-baked pie crust. For the pie crust, you can use my pastry pie crust recipe or my shortbread crust recipe. For the pie photographed, I used a shortbread crust. Oh my heavens, it’s absolutely delicious!

Once the filling has cooled, you pour it over the strawberries, making sure they’ve all been nicely coated. Then, you pop it into the refrigerator for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to chill completely.

When I arrange my strawberries for this pie, I like to have two layers of strawberries. It just provides a really pretty presentation and you know that with every bite, you’ll get plenty of strawberries. No skimpy pieces with this beauty of a pie.

Perfect Make Ahead Pie

You can easily make this pie ahead if you’d like! After making the pie according to instructions, cover and place in the refrigerator. It keeps well in the refrigerator for about three days.

You just might want to hide it because around my house, there is no way this pie lasts three days!

Here’s my Strawberry Pie recipe. I think you are going to love every bite of it!

    Best pie we ever ate!!! With the one recipe, we were able to make three small pies and gave one pie away to friends. They said that it was outstanding and it looked professional. Cut the sugar to 1/2 cup but could have used less because we baked with Oregon “Hood” strawberries that are very sweet (no white center :)).
    Went drove back to the produce farm and bought two flats so we can make more PIES!!!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      How lucky you are to have those strawberries; wish we could get them here. I’m glad everyone loved the pies. Thanks!

  2. Carey says:

    Hi! I am looking for a strawberry filling for cakes. Do you think this recipe would be a good idea?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I don’t think this pie recipe would work for a cake filling, Carey. Here is my Strawberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe but I don’t have a strawberry filling recipe for cake.

  3. Betty says:

    I used a chocolate crumb crust from recycled ingredients, for this pie. I had made a chocolate cake, that did not turn out. It had good ingredients, with pecans and tasted good. I did not want to throw it out. I put it in a food processor and made chocolate crumbs, which already had the sugar and flour, but added the needed amount of butter to get it all to stick together, and followed directions for your shortbread crust. It turned out great…no waste.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Sounds delicious, Betty!

  4. Terri says:

    Hi Robyn! I have fresh strawberries that I fairly recently picked and froze. Would I be able to use these in this recipe? If not, do you have any recipes that call for frozen strawberries? Thanks Robyn

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Terri,
      I haven’t made this pie with frozen strawberries but I think it would work. My Strawberry Pretzel Salad uses frozen strawberries. I think you would love it. For other recipes that you might be able to use frozen strawberries, go to the Search bar on right side of my site and search for Strawberry. It should pull up all my recipes that contain strawberries. Hope this helps!

    Can you use Splenda instead of sugar for this recipe ? Thank You

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I’ve not tried it with Splenda, Mike. I’m not sure how it will turn out, but if you try it, let me know how it works. Thanks!
