Strawberry Pie Recipe
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!
