Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
For my mother's 70th birthday and Mother's Day, I made two of these strawberry pies instead of a cake. Since it was mid-May in Texas, the berries were absolutely perfect. It was a memorable occasion for the whole family. —Sue A. Jurack

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • Fresh mint, optional

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 264 calories, 7 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 5 mg cholesterol, 125 mg sodium, 49 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until slightly cooled.
  3. Meanwhile, arrange strawberries in the crust. Pour gelatin mixture over berries. Refrigerate until set. Garnish with mint if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
TEST KITCHEN TIP Sue often uses whole fresh strawberries and arranges them pointed side up in the pastry shell for a different presentation. It also is a time-saver because she doesn't have to slice the berries.

To amybooth. Possibly the cornstarch wasn't completely cooked. That would give you the cloudiness.

Better luck next time. I off to make this pie again but with raspberries this ,time.

I followed the recipe exactly & the gelatin mixture on top of the berries looks hazy. I am guessing red food coloring would have made this glaze look more appealing on top of the berries.
