Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch deep dish pie crust pre-baked in a skillet or pie plate
  • 1 quart Fresh whole strawberries hulled and washed (about 1 quart, total. I reserve the smallest, less than perfect ones to use in the glaze below and leave the nicest ones whole for the pie.)

Glaze:

  • 1 cup crushed strawberries
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup cold water

Instructions

  • Pre-cook your pie shell according to your recipe or instructions, if store-bought. Allow to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, place the crushed strawberries and white sugar in a small saucepan. Dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water and stir in as well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling, cook 3 minutes more, stirring, then remove to a glass measuring cup to cool completely.
  • When pie crust and glaze is cooled, stir glaze and spoon a bit on to the bottom of the pie shell and spread evenly to a thin layer. Arrange the strawberries into the pie shell.
  • Slowly pour the rest of the glaze over the whole berries, taking care to coat every berry.  Refrigerate pie for at least an hour, but preferably 2 hours, then serve topped with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream. Alternately, you can cover the entire top of the pie with a layer of whipped cream.
  • This pie is best enjoyed on the day it is made.
