Fresh Strawberry Pie

This pie recipe is perfect for summer because it can be made without turning the oven on.

You can use a store-bought pie crust or a no-bake graham cracker crust as a base (or go the fancy route and make your own pie crust).

This Strawberry Pie is loaded with juicy, fresh strawberries and made with a homemade strawberry glaze without gelatin. This way, the natural flavor of the strawberries is the star.

Is you are looking for other fresh strawberry recipes, we have a LOT of them! You could make anything from a no bake strawberry cheesecake to decadent chocolate covered strawberry brownie cupcakes!

I have the biggest sweet tooth and love everything with berries but strawberry pie is definitely one of my favorite desserts! I also LOVE this sour cream raisin pie!

This Fresh Strawberry Pie is the perfect spring and summer dessert made with simple ingredients! Top it with a big dollop of whipped cream and you have an easy dessert that everyone will love!

Recipe Tips

  • Homemade crust OR premade – I used a homemade pie crust for this recipe but you can also use a Graham Cracker Crust or a store-bought pie crust to save time.
  • For the best flavor, use fresh, high-quality strawberries. The strawberries are the star of this recipe so look for the freshest strawberries you can find that don’t have any bruises or discoloration.
  • Avoiding a soggy crust – This pie tastes best on the same day! The longer it sits the higher the risk of the juicy strawberries making the pie crust soggy. To avoid a soggy pie crust you can seal the crust by painting melted chocolate in the bottom and inside of cooled pie crust. Place the crust in the freezer to set the chocolate before adding the berries.

  • Combine the ingredients well – Make sure to stir the cornstarch mixture continuously for 2-3 minutes until it is thick and translucent. You don’t want it to be clumpy.
  • Keep it cool – This pie won’t be as sturdy because it is made without Jello, but it will not ooze all over after cutting if you keep it refrigerated and serve it straight from the fridge.
  • Don’t forget the whipped cream! Strawberries and cream are a match made in heaven!!

    1. There is None – it says "Fresh Strawberry Pie without Jello"

      That is WITHOUT Jello

      Try it – very similar to my grams recipe from 85+ years ago – it'very good, I always quarter my berries, make eating the pie easier and the sauce seeps through and covers the berries easier that way

  1. I have made this pie for years. Wonderful. The only difference is that I carefully stir all the remaining berries into the cooled pie filling glaze to evenly coat…then pour into the pie shell. I save a few to make a pretty strawberry flower on top. This is a guarantee all the berries are evenly coated….and less work!!!

  2. I’ve made something similar for years….. to keep the crust from getting soggy, it has a thin layer of cream cheese spread on the crust before you pile in the strawberries. I never would have thought to use chocolate, it sounds good
