This my friends is one of those pies that sings to my heart. 

Homemade Strawberry Pie is almost like shortcake but in a Flaky Pie Crust or Graham Cracker Crust dependent on how you roll. One of the most important things when making a Strawberry Pie is making sure the strawberries are incredibly ripe.

I went all the way this time with a Flaky Crust because I was already making that luscious Lemon Meringue Pie I shared last week so I had a second crust needing to be put to use.

Lorna has been asking me to make another one since we devoured the first one in less then a day so I'm thinking maybe I'll have her help make another one for Easter. This is one of those desserts I could eat for breakfast or dessert for the rest of my life and totally be content.

I'm pretty sure my family will agree! Here's how to make Strawberry Pie:

Uncooked flaky pastry dough in a glass pie plate shaped and the edge fluted on a bamboo cutting board with pieces of pie dough scattered around and a pairing knife laying on the board.

First you'll need to bake 1 9" Flaky Pie Crust. You can find the directions to bake it here.

Or you can use a 9" Baked Graham Cracker Cust.

Sliced Fresh Strawberries in a glass blender.

In a blender puree 2 1/4 cups Chopped Strawberries, 1/3 cup Water and Juice of 1 Lemon until smooth.

(Pretend Picture Of 5 Cups Sliced In Half Strawberries Here)

Remove stems and slice in half another 5 cups of strawberries.

Pureed Fresh Strawberries, Sugar, Cornstarch, Lemon Zest and Salt being whisked together in a medium sized stainless steel saucepan with a flat stainless steel whisk.

In a medium sized sauce pan whisk together: 
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1 pinch of Salt 
Until well combined. Slowly whisk in pureed strawberry mixture until smooth to prevent lumps.

Cooked thicken strawberry filling mixture with vanilla extract being whisked in a stainless steel saucepan.

Cook strawberry mixture over medium heat until thickened and bubbling.

Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract.

Refrigerate Strawberry Pie for 4 hours until cold or overnight.

Serve with freshly sweetened whipped cream and garnish with a strawberry on top totally optional.

  1. My little boy loves strawberry pie! I am sure he would love this. What a great way to welcome Spring!

  2. Wow, Nicole. Some of my favorite food memories immediately returned to me when I saw the pictures of your PERFECT strawberry pie. My dad's mom made the BEST strawberry pie on the planet (or so I thought as a child) and I considered it the ultimate dessert. I have to tell you, your pie rivals the memories I have of hers - simply stunning and it sounds delish! Your crust looks amazing, too, and I hope to try both this weekend. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes.

  3. I've never had a pie quite like this one. It is screaming for spring weather! Beautiful!

  4. Oh wow! This looks amazing, and for *sure* I would eat this for breakfast! Beautiful!

  5. Fresh strawberry pie is a favorite around here! Yours is beautiful!
