Fresh Strawberry PIe

Around here, we’re really into fresh berries all summer long. Straight from the farmer’s market or in the form of pie, you just can’t go wrong.

Also, we’re all about the buttery flaky crust (no shortening here,) which hugs all the very best pies. From the Best Fall Apple Pie to this luscious Summer Blueberry Pie… it’s gotta have a flaky butter crust.

All this pie talk had me dreaming of fresh strawberry pie for days. So here it is. This fresh strawberry pie is even better than our favorite restaurant pie – we get to pick the best ripe berries and use only 3 real and simple ingredients to let the strawberries shine.

How to make fresh strawberry pie

A great pie always starts with a great crust. Our fave is this all butter (no shortening) crust that results in tender, flaky amazingness. Once you make the recipe for double crust dough, divide it in half. Use one crust for this strawberry pie and freeze half of the dough for next week’s pie 😉

Making your own amazing crust is really not hard, but if you’d rather brush a cat’s teeth than make pie dough, there’s no judgment for buying prepared dough. Disclosure: it won’t taste nearly the same because it just can’t, but it will work in a pinch.

You’ll bake the single crust in empty pie pan — known as blind baking — with pie weights to help the crust bake without puffing or bubbling up. You can also use dry beans or rice for DIY pie weights.

Use the freshest, juiciest, ripest red strawberries you can possibly find. Be picky here, because the quality of your berries are everything in this strawberry pie.

We make a super simple strawberry filling with just 3 real ingredients: fresh strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch. That’s it. We cook down the filling until it’s perfectly thick and glaze-like. Nothing artificial, no fake colors, and only huge strawberry flavor. I’m tempted to make this filling to use as fresh jam over my daily toast. #thatgood

It’s important to let the filling cool to warm or lukewarm before pouring it all over the fresh berries that you’ve arranged in the baked pie shell. Then, you just set it in the fridge to chill and forget it for a few hours until it’s the perfect texture to dig into.

Nothing Beats a Flaky, Buttery Crust

Just salivating over the fresh, juicy strawberries. ⇑ The perfectly sweet and flavorful berry glaze. ⇑ The flaky crust. So Good. 

This stunning strawberry pie genuinely doesn’t need any embellishment. It’s perfect the way it is. But if you’re tempted to pretty it up…

Stabilized Whipped Cream Won’t Lose its Shape

Some fresh stabilized whipped cream makes it extra cute. Strawberry Pie, you look simply ravishing right now. Evidently, everyone in my crew thought so too, because I only got a skinny sliver of pie before it was All. Gone.

This strawberry pie technically can feed 6-8. In my hungry house, it’s more like 2-3.  I’m sorry I can’t tell you if leftovers keep well, because I’d have to make three pies simultaneously to know the answer.

I’m headed back to the local farmer’s market for more berries very, very soon.

  • Prep Time: 45 min
  • Cook Time: 20 min
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

Yield: 8

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F with rack on lower middle position. Press single pie dough evenly into bottom and up sides of a regular 9-inch pie pan (not deep dish.) Roll excess dough over edges and crimp well.
  2. Line dough with parchment paper so that it’s fitted and excess edges of paper extend 1-2 inches beyond pie pan. Fill with pie weights  and bake 12-15 minutes, watching so edges don’t get over browned. Remove pie weights with parchment paper carefully and return empty pie shell into oven for another 5 minutes or until bottom looks dry/baked (cover loosely with foil if edges are cooking too quickly.) Let baked shell cool to room temp while you prepare the filling.
  3. Mash 2 cups fresh strawberries. Transfer to a medium saucepan and add sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Add dissolved cornstarch/water mixture and continue boiling/stirring for 2-3 minutes or just until filling is thickened and glossy. Transfer filling to a shallow dish to allow quicker cooling; cool at least 10 minutes or to warm/lukewarm.
  4. Place remaining 4 cups whole strawberries evenly into the baked/cooled pie shell. Evenly distribute filling mixture over the strawberries. Chill at least 2 hours to set, before slicing. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Notes

If you make enough dough for a double crust, wrap half of the dough airtight and freeze for up to several weeks. Pie weights can be made out of uncooked/dry rice or beans as well. To quickly mash strawberries, I place them in batches on a large cutting board and cover with cling wrap. Using a meat tenderizer, I give it a few mild whacks to mash in a jiffy.

    The strawberry pie looks out of this world delish. I have to be honest, strawberries never last long enough in my house to make a pie. I usually eat them as soon as they are hulled and washed. 🙂
