Strawberry Pie Recipe

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.)

You will see in the “Variations” section below that this same recipe can be easily converted into a fresh raspberry or peach pie recipe, or into individual strawberry tarts.

Whatever way you make it, you just have to give this recipe a try.

Strawberries are not only delicious. They are super healthy for us. Eating them for dessert is not just a treat – it’s good for us.

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.

I have noted this as a Diabetic recipe because you can pretty much eliminate the sugar content if you want to. You can replace all or at least half of the sugar with a substitute like Stevia or coconut sugar. That would lower the carb count by an amazing amount and make this a healthy diabetic dessert. We all need a bit of sweet in our lives at some point!
