Strawberry Pie

Last week, there was going to be a post on butterscotch fudge. It didn’t turn out like I expected and I didn’t want to post a recipe that wasn’t great. This week’s recipe, however, turned out amazingly.

Easy Strawberry Pie

This recipe is very simple and is great for summer. The only baking involved is with the pie crust; the filling doesn’t get baked in the oven, so it won’t heat up your house too much. It will need to cool in the fridge for a while, so the time spent compared with baking a pie is about the same. It’s also very delicious, and who doesn’t love pie?

You Will Need:

  • Pie crust
  • 4 cups of sliced strawberries (~2 lbs)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/4 cup (10 oz) 7-Up or Sprite
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • Red food coloring
  • Whipped cream of your choice

Step 1: For baking your crust, follow the directions on the package or the recipe for baking an empty pie crust.

Step 2: In a medium sauce pan, combine the sugar, 7-Up (or Sprite), and corn starch. Whisk until well blended. Over medium-high heat, cook the mixture until it becomes gel-like (see photo below). Add a few drops of red food coloring until desired color is met. Remove from heat and let cool.

Step 2A Step 2B

Step 3: Place the sliced strawberries in the baked pie crust and add the gelatinous glaze, being careful not to spill any over the sides. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Slice and top with whipped cream or Cool Whip. Makes about 8 servings.

  1. You’ve been a blogging machine these last few days, Steph! This pie looks so delicious and fresh, since the strawberries don’t look mushy. I just might have to try this one!
