Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe

Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe

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 Jurack, Mequon, Wisconsin

"This was delicious. I didn't have enough strawberries so I threw in raspberries and blackberries that I had too. I have only had this pie with that packet of glaze you buy but this was so easy and tasted great."

"Use only 1/4 cup sugar! Trust me, the jello packet provides plenty of sweetness so the 3/4 cup is not necessary. It came out perfect this way."

"I made this as directed. Next time, here's what I would do differently because the topping is only on the top! Make more topping, when cooled, stir in the strawberries to the topping. THEN pour the strawberry mixture into the baked crust. That way the strawberries have more moisture & adds to the taste."

"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."

"Great, easy recipe. I have always struggled with strawberry pies being too soupy, but it was not the case with this recipe. Each slice of pie held its shape great.

If you like a very sweet pie you may need to add more sugar than the recipe calls for, unless you are using fresh-picked strawberries. I thought it tasted great as the recipe was, though.
We garnished this with fresh homemade whipped cream and it was delicious."

"The best, and oh, so easy! It's so nice to make a fruit pie from fresh fruit, and make the glaze, rather than purchase it. This is a keeper. My husband gives it 5 stars also! And it makes me look good! :)"
