Strawberry Pie



Strawberry Pie with a delicious crust that doesn’t need to be rolled! This was the way  Strawberry Pie was meant to be made. It is the easiest Strawberry Pie I have ever made and the most delicious. You will definitely want to try this one!




Butter a 9″ pie plate.


Make the crust:

Mix your ingredients until it starts

to come together, I used a fork.

Using your fingers, mix until it forms

a ball with all the flour incorporated

into the butter. There is no rolling

with this pie crust. Just press it into the

buttered pie plate, pressing it up the

sides just a little. Let me tell you, it is so

good! It isn’t like a regular pie crust.



Bake the crust in a preheated 350 degree

oven until it is just starting to brown.

Let your baked pie crust cool.



Hull your washed strawberries and

cut them into quarters. Let them sit

in a colander to drain completely.


Now it’s time to make the syrup that will hold

the strawberries together. For this you will need

to cook the syrup in a larger heavy bottom pan

on top of the stove. Bring syrup to a boil, stirring

frequently or the sugar will burn. Once it boils,

add the Jell-O and stir until the Jell-O is

dissolved. Let it cool in the refrigerator for

10 minutes. Pour the strawberries into the

syrup and mix together for a few minutes,

making sure all of the berries are coated with the

syrup mixture. The syrup is still very warm so it

helps to softened the berries and make them even

sweeter. Pour the strawberry mixture into the

pie plate and refrigerate at least an hour.

Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

      • Hi! Thanks for stopping by my site. I always have trouble with my pie crust. I’ll have to try your recipe. I edited “The Serenity Prayer” after I posted it, but you probably didn’t miss much – maybe the year it first got written by Reinhold Niebuhr, an American. I look forward to reading more of your blogs.

  1. I have to make this! Do you think I could use honey in place of the sugar in the pie filling?

    • Yes there is an all natural vegan jel power. Amazon sells it called “Unflavored Vegan Jel by Natural Desserts: Gelatin Desserts. However you won’t get the strawberry flavor from it. They do make an organic strawberry powder so maybe that could be added to the Vegan Jel. I hope this helps!

  2. I’ve never baked a pie before.I have access to fresh Rhubarb.I would like to make a Strawberry/Rhubarb pie.Do you have a recipe for this Diane?
    thank you!

    • I grow my own strawberries and rhubarb. You would think I would! I love them both separately and have never combined them because nobody else likes rhubarb but me! Sad isn’t it…lol So no, I’m afraid I haven’t made one.

    • Food is always appreciated in our house. My husband is always grateful and does the dishes almost every time I cook! I think that’s what makes cooking so much fun for me. My granddaughter has to help me cook everything now! Of course that makes me so happy! Thank you for your nice comment!

  3. I really love to eat pies & Strawberry. Strawberry pie is just superb & heavenly tasty. Keep sharing more delicious recipes. Happy upcoming newyear. May new year brings lots of happiness for you and your’s entire family. I hope you will soon check my latest posts about india travel. Thanks.

  4. Strawberries are my favourite. Have been trying out various delicious recipes like strawberry and cream, strawberry ice cream and now will try out your recipe of a strawberry pie for this season.

  5. Looks yummy. I love strawberry pie. Can’t wait to try that crust. Your pics look delicious.

  6. I love any crust that is press-in the pan! Strawberries are just coming in here, and I can’t wait to get out in the fields to pick with the kids! Nothing like a strawberry warmed from the sun (even though we’ve had mostly rain here this year!).

  7. I made your yummy strawberry pie but had way too much syrup. I guess maybe twice as much as needed. Did I do something wrong? I used a 9″ pie pan. Maybe next time I’ll try a larger pie pan. It’s good.
