Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe

Each year we wait for "strawberry time" here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We believe our strawberries are the best in the country! After picking them at a nearby farm, I can't wait to get home to make this pie.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • 2 cups halved fresh strawberries, mashed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional


  • 1. For bottom layer, place sliced strawberries in the pie shell. For middle layer, combine the mashed strawberries, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cool for 15 minutes; pour over bottom layer. Arrange strawberry halves on top of pie. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  • 2. Just before serving, whip cream with sugar and almond extract if desired until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pie or garnish individual servings. Yield: 6-8 servings.
