Ingredient Checklist


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.
