This is a quick and easy fresh strawberry pie recipe that tastes like summer itself.

Strawberry pie, made out of fresh, especially local, strawberries is such a wonderful treat.

You wouldn’t think it could be good for you, but strawberries are one of the healthiest foods around. (Okay I admit, the sugar isn’t that great. But it is a treat.)

Fresh Strawberry Pie

 

Ingredients

  • 1 single crust pie crust, prepared
  • 6 cups of strawberries (about 1 1/2 quarts), divided
  • 1 cup sugar or equivalent amount of sugar substitute
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • red food color if desired
  • 3 ounces softened cream cheese

Method

Step 1

Mash enough berries to measure 1 cup. (Keep the nicest berries whole to use as the pie filling).

Step 2

Stir together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water and crushed berries gradually. Cook all over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute longer. Stir in a few drops of red food coloring if desired. Let cool.

Step 3

Beat cream cheese until smooth. Spread it on the bottom of a cooled baked pie shell. Fill the shell with the whole strawberries. Pour cooled cooked berry mixture over the top. Chill for at least 3 hours to set.

One pie is about 6 servings.

Variations:

  • For strawberry tarts, just replace the pie pastry with individual tart shells. Follow the same instructions as the pie.
  • To change this strawberry pie recipe into one of the nicest fresh raspberry desserts, substitute 6 cups of fresh raspberries for the strawberries. An easy raspberry pie recipe.
  • Replace the strawberries with about 7 cups of sliced fresh peaches (about 7 medium peaches) for an easy peach pie recipe. To prevent the peaches from browning dip them in a mixture of ascorbic acid and water or lemon juice and water. Drain well before adding to the pie.
