Fresh Strawberry Pie





  1. What’s the best way to slice strawberries? When slicing strawberries, remove the leaves with a ¼ teaspoon measuring spoon. Place the berry hull side down on a cutting board and cut into slices.

  2. How do you thicken strawberry pie filling? The small amount of cornstarch in this Fresh Strawberry Pie recipe acts as a thickening agent for the glaze. The cornstarch easily dissolves and doesn’t have a starchy flavor. This creates the perfect consistency, allowing the pie to hold its shape when slicing.

  3. How do you wash fresh-picked strawberries? Fresh strawberries should remain stored in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Please do not wash them until you are ready to use them. Then gently toss in a colander under cool, running water. Let the water drain and place it on a paper towel-lined sheet pan. Let air dry or pat gently dry with a paper towel.

Add the homemade strawberry glaze and gently combine it with a rubber spatula until all the strawberries are evenly coated. Next, fill the cooled pie crust with the strawberry pie filling. If you would like a better presentation, you can arrange the strawberries in the pie shell first, then spoon the glaze over the top.

  • 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.
  • Serve the Fresh Strawberry Pie with the fresh whipped cream.

Suggested recipes:

  •  Watergate salad, often called Pistachio Pineapple Delight or Green Fluff dessert salad, is made from about seven ingredients: instant pistachio pudding, juicy pineapple, whipped topping, chopped pecans, colored mini marshmallows, topped with coconut flakes, and Maraschino cherries.
  • Strawberry Pretzel Salad is a creamy, fruity, and crunchy Southern classic. So what is Strawberry Pretzel Salad, you might ask? Well, it’s not a salad at all, it’s what we call an Iconic Southern Dessert that reminds folks of a Jello-like Cheesecake, with a sweet, yet salty crust, made with hard pretzels, sugar, unsalted butter, topped with juicy ripe sliced strawberries, strawberry Jello, and a big dollop of homemade whipped cream to serve.
  • Strawberry Fluff is filled to the brim with delicious juicy pineapple, fresh Florida grown strawberries, mini marshmallows, and a hint of flaky coconut for good measure.
