Fresh Strawberry Pie

How to make a Fresh Strawberry Pie.


  • A 9 inch deep dish pie crust homemade or store bought
  • 10 cups fresh strawberries sliced/halved
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons corn starch, start with two add the other if not thick enough
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 drops red food coloring (optional)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla use pure extract


  1. Puree 1 and ½ cups of fresh strawberries in a food processor or mash by hand.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch, then add the strawberry puree and water.
  3. Bring the mixture to a light simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Lower the heat slightly and cook for 2-3 more minutes until the strawberry mixture thickens and is translucent in colour.
  5. Reserve the glaze and let cool until room temperature.
  6. If you want a red glaze add 2 drops of red food colouring to the mixture.
  7. Place the pie crust into a deep dish pie pan, trimming any excess off the edges.
  8. Use aluminum foil to cover the edges to prevent burning.
  9. Bake at 375 F until the pie crust is golden brown.
  10. Remove the pie shell from the oven and cool completely for about 1 hour before filling.
  11. Meanwhile, cut the strawberries in halves or even thirds and place them in a large bowl.
  12. Add the homemade strawberry glaze and gently combine it with a rubber spatula until all the strawberries are evenly coated.
  13. Next fill the cooled pie crust with the strawberry pie filling.
  14. If you would like a better presentation, you can arrange the strawberries in the pie shell first, then spoon the glaze over the top. 
  15. Chill the fresh strawberry pie for around 4 hours or until set.
  16. Make the homemade whipped cream by beating the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla with a mixer until smooth, thick, and nearly doubled in volume, forming peaks.
  17. Serve with the fresh whipped cream and enjoy!
