Strawberry Picking & Pie Recipe

Yesterday, we went on a strawberry-picking double date, and then made pie. Yum!

Not-so-intently picking

The most perfectest berry of the evening

Berries all ready for pie

Four perfect pies!

So pretty!

Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe (from

*** One personal note about this recipe: I've found it's best to make a double batch of the gelatin filling, especially if you make 9 or 10 inch pies! It doesn't quite fill up the pie as-is the way the recipe says to do it.

  • 2 (8 inch) pie shells, baked
  • 2 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin

  1. In a saucepan, mix together the sugar and corn starch; make sure to blend corn starch in completely. Add boiling water, and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Add gelatin mix, and stir until smooth. Let mixture cool to room temperature.
  2. Place strawberries in baked pie shells; position berries with points facing up. Pour cooled gel mixture over strawberries.
  3. Refrigerate until set. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
