As promised, I’m waking you guys up on this Monday morning with the smell of fresh strawberry pie! Sharing more about our trip to the strawberry patch and giving you guys the details on the easiest homemade strawberry pie recipe…like so easy you can make it for dessert tonight! Last week when my mom was in town, we planned to spend all of Thursday morning at one of my favorite local farms (Halls, for you CLT peeps) who has their strawberry crop open for the public to pick. Aside from strawberries being Landry’s all time favorite fruit, she’s also been super in to gardening and helping me with yard work, so I knew that this would be a day well spent for her. They have a big play yard at the front of the farm too, so it was a perfect morning for us all. We picked strawberries for about 15 minutes and were able to fill an entire crate in that time. I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with our loot and that was make my mom’s homemade strawberry pie! I remember her making it every Easter and the minute I thought about it I started to crave it! Luckily, she was here to show me the ropes and share her recipe with you guys! Here’s a peek, but keep scrolling for the details!

Now to make your yummy pie! It was SO much easier than I expected, has the best light and fresh taste is the perfect dessert to make with your fresh, in-season strawberries! Here’s what you’ll need:
Homemade Strawberry Pie
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 cup of sugar
1.5 cups of water
3oz box of regular strawberry Jell-o
2.5 cups sliced strawberries
1 pre-made (frozen) 10” pie crust
1 tub of whipped cream
Step 1: Wash, dry and slice strawberries
Step 2: Bake Pie Crust according to packaging directions. My mom uses a fork to poke holes in the frozen crust to avoid a lot of bubbling while baking.
Step 3: In a saucepan over medium to high heat, mix cornstarch, sugar and water and stir constantly bringing to a boil. Once this mixture is thickened, add in Jell-o and stir until fully dissolved.
Step 4: Take off of the heat and and let this mixture cool for at least 20 minutes.
Step 5: Once cooled, fold in strawberries and pour mixture into the baked pie shell and top with whipped cream. If you’re dairy free, I used THIS and it was amazing!!
Step 6: Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
So easy, right?? I promise that this recipe is so super simple and such a crowd pleaser. I think that Dan thought that I loved him a little more when he came home to fresh strawberry pie. Let me know if you guys try it…I would love to hear your thoughts! If not, make sure to pin to for later or for when you see the strawberries on special at your local grocery! Have a great week, friends!
