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!

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 strawberry 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!

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 strawberry pie.

You can easily make this pie ahead if you’d like. It keeps well in the refrigerator for about three days covered. You just might want to hide it because around my house, there is no way this pie lasts three days!

  1. Hi Robyn,

    I’m learning so please excuse my ignorance – do you whisk the sugar and cornstarch long before adding the boiling water? I have recently me a lady that has a strawberry farm near me and I’ll be enjoying fresh strawberries soon. This pie will be a delicious way to do that! Thank you! You know I’m pinning this!

    • Hi Kim,
      Yes, you’ll add both the sugar and the cornstarch to your saucepan and give them a quick whisk to make sure they are combined well before adding your boiling water. Oh, this will be perfect with farm fresh strawberries! I hope you love it! xo

    • Thank you Robyn, I’m sure we will enjoy it!

  2. What a beautiful, ruby red pie! I’m sure it would create a lot of “ooh”s and “aah”s at the dinner table. 🙂

  3. Strawberry pie is one of my favorites! Using a shortbread crust is a great and delicious twist!

  4. I just LOVE strawberry pie, and this is one of the very best I have seen. There is just nothing better in the Spring and Summer girl!

  5. Mmmmm. Just a few more weeks until we can pick local strawberries. We have been talking about all we will make with them once they are picked. Strawberry pie is on the list.

  6. I think as Southeners, we love pie. Any kind of pie. We aren’t picky pie eaters! This is a great recipe, and I spotted some bright ripe strawberries at the store the other day, I think this pie is a perfect way to enjoy them! Great recipe!

  7. This pie looks fantastic! Will be making it soon…gotta pick the strawberries first! Thanks!

  8. Robyn,
    I love strawberry pie!!! I always have my fridge packed with strawberries from now until the end of summer. . this pie needs to happen and love that it’s no bake!!!!

  9. I love anything that is delicious and that looks beautiful, at the same time. This looks amazing. I am making this now, can’t wait till tomorrow.

  10. I think I need to make this next week! Looks yummy!

  11. HI ROBYN MY MOM AND I WOULD PICK STRAWBERRIES WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL AND I WOULD EAT ALMOST AS MANY AS I PICKED–SMILES.THANK YOU FOR THIS TASTY LOOKING PIE WILL BE MAKING THIS SOON.I WAS RAISED IN NC .HAVE A BLESSED MOTHERS DAY . GOD BLESS.

  12. A beautiful pie! I have been making a strawberry pie very similar to this for years from a Betty Crocker Cookbook I got as a wedding gift in the early 70’s. It is simple and delicious. Here’s a tip to take this pie over the edge, also from BC. Soften up a 4 oz pkg of good quality cream cheese and carefully spread it over the bottom of the baked pie shell before adding the fresh strawberries and glaze! AMAZING!

  13. No bake pie is always a go to when you crave for something fresh and sweet. It is more energy inducing when matched with a shot of espresso!!!

  14. Hi Robyn, thanks for the post, this looks delicious

  15. hi robyn

    this looks scrumptious

    i will be cooking this on sunday

    thanks for recipe

  16. Can I use frozen strawberries?

  17. The crust, the filling…oh my this pie is so yummy!  Crust was super easy to make.  I stuck it in the fridge while the oven heated to chill it so it wouldn’t shrink which was perfect. Everything came together very easily and not only does it taste delicious but it looks so beautiful too!  Excellent recipe Robyn!

  18. This tart is delicious even with me flopping it. I made it yesterday with the shortbread crust, it was so thick I couldnt cut it and nobody could eat it with a fork because of this. So today I remade it with pastry. The problem i am having is with the glazing. It stays runny and the bottom of the strawberries is just a pool of very yummy liquid. Of course with the pastry it made it soggy. The family still finished the whole tart but i would appreciate input as to why i cant get it right.

    Still the most delicious flop i have ever created and I flop my meals on a daily basis.

    Thank you for the inspiration,

    Wannabe chef 🙂

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it and hope I can help so you enjoy making the pie another time. First, I think it sounds like you needed to press the shortbread crust down more, because it is not supposed to be that thick.
      I don’t know what happened to make the glaze runny – I’ve never had that happen.
      It could also be a difference in the ingredients used, but I’m not sure as I’ve never had any problems with this pie.
      I hope this helps. Thanks so much!

  19. Hey Robyn!

    Why would I whisk sugar and corn starch in a small sauce pan over a medium low heat before adding boiling water? Am I suppose to brown it first? Maybe you meant to say, “Whisk sugar and corn starch in a small sauce pan. Then add boiling water and stir over a medium low heat.”

    RAdd boiling water and stir over a medium low heat.”

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