  • 1 store-bought pie crust baked as directed
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries quartered
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup strawberry juice *from macerated strawberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch


  • Bake pie crust as directed or make a homemade pie crust.
  • Combine sugar and quartered strawberries in a bowl. Allow to macerate for about 20 minutes at room temperature or until you have ¾ cup strawberry juice and the sugar completely dissolves. Strain the liquid from the strawberries into a measuring cup and add water as needed, about ¼ cup, until you reach 1 cup of liquid. Set the strawberries aside.
  • Whisk 3 tablespoons of cornstarch into the liquid and transfer to a small pot with about ¼ cup of the strawberries. Use a potato masher or spatula to break the strawberries into small pieces. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat and stir constantly for about 8-10 minutes until it thickens to a jam-like consistency.
  • Pour the thickened strawberry sauce over the remaining strawberries and toss to combine. Then transfer the mixture into your prepared pie crust and flatten the berries with a spatula. Refrigerate your pie for at least 4 hours or until completely set.


Storage: Cover leftover strawberry pie with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate to store. Fresh strawberry pie will last up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
