Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Line pastry with a double layer of aluminum foil and a layer of pie weights or dried beans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edge of crust is golden, about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and weights and bake until the crust has set, about 5 minutes more. Allow crust to cool.

  • Bring water and pureed strawberries to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in sugar, gelatin, cornstarch, and salt until dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

  • Arrange strawberries in pie crust and pour gelatin mixture over berries. Chill until gelatin is set or overnight.

Cook's Note:

May have to slice some of the larger strawberries in half, make sure to let the berries dry completely after washing. Lay them out on a clean kitchen towel, let them dry for several minutes and pat them with a paper towel before putting into the crust. Try brushing the top of the completed chilled pie with a little melted apple jelly to give it a glossy top.

This is the worst pie I've ever had. Way too much sugar and the jello does not help anything. Read More

I've always had bad luck making fresh strawberry pie but this one turned out fantastic! I decided to just make the filling without the crust and put it in individual dishes and topped with cool whip. It set up perfectly! Read More

I used more strawberries than the recipe called for and it turned out great! It is very sweet especially if you use 1 cup of sugar I didn't use quite that much. You might also need to make more of the jelly - mixture because mine didn't fill up the pie crust I had a lot of crust showing. But if you cover it up with whip cream and a couple of strawberries you can't tell the difference! Read More

The best strawberry pie ever!! I think adding the 1/3 cup of purée is what makes it extraordinary. Also it comes out of the pan perfectly - no falling apart as I have found with other recipes. Read More
