Easy Homemade Strawberry Pie

strawberry pie5

We celebrated “pi day” yesterday with one of my favorite, most delicious, and right now, cheapest pie recipes.  My daughters and I made this easy homemade strawberry pie!  Piggly Wiggly had strawberries on sale for $0.99/pound this week, so I made 2 pies.  Good thing I did make 2 because only 1/2 of 1 of left in the refrigerator LOL  I’ll probably head back over to Piggly Wiggly today to pick up more strawberries and make a couple more pies.  Everyone in our house LOVES this pie.  Every time I make it; my son says I need to open a “Strawberry Pie Restaurant”   😀  I’m pretty sure they would eat all of my inventory!  This is so super easy and I just know you’re going to LOVE it!

Gather your ingredients:

  • 1# fresh strawberries
  • 1 3 oz box of strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 pie crust (I have used both regular pie crust and graham cracker pie crust and they’re both delicious with this recipe)

Get to cooking:

  1. Remove cap from each strawberry and slice them in halves or fourths.
  2. Place strawberries in prepared pie crust.
  3. Combine water, sugar, and corn starch in pan on stove and bring to a boil.  Turn heat down to medium-high and continue cooking for about 3 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken.  It is a good idea to use a wire wisk for this portion to keep the corn starch from clumping.
  4. Remove the pot from heat and pour strawberry gelatin into sugar/water mixture and stir until dissolved.
  5. Pour gelatin mixture over your fresh strawberries.  Place in refrigerator for about 3 hours or until chilled.
  6. ENJOY!  See, I told you it was easy 😀
