Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie

My sweet husband made us a strawberry pie yesterday.

You can see how he made it (and built an arbor too this weekend . . . ) right over HERE

It was divine.


This is the same pie recipe he made the very first time he and I ever talked on the phone. 


And it's still just as yummy as it was way back then.


(In fact, maybe even yummier today since it has 23 years of tradition piled in.) 🙂 

If penny pinched strawberries are calling your name right now, here's your opportunity to make this one too.

  1. baked pie crust
  2. 4 cups strawberries, drained
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 cup sugar
  5. 1/4 cup corn starch
  6. 4 tablespoons strawberry Jell-o



  1. Bring water, sugar, and corn starch to boiling on low heat, until thickened (you'll need to stir this constantly)
  2. Add 4 tablespoons of Strawberry Jello, cool slightly.
  3. Drizzle jello mixture over berries
  4. Refrigerate until firm, slice and enjoy!

  1. I have been making this recipe for 27 years. I got it from a friend who got it from a friend, etc. Its been around for years. So so yummy……..

  2. It really is the best Karen ~ if I’m not careful I’ll eat the entire pie all by myself! 🙂

  3. I have already made two! They are the best ever!

    • We made two as well – I’m so glad because the first one would have been gone within 24 hours (so glad we have a backup!) 🙂

  4. Can you substitute frozen strawberries?

    • Hi Sue! Hmm, I’m thinking the frozen strawberries may get too mushy for this recipe, but there are some other yummy-looking strawberry pie recipes on Google where you can use frozen berries! 🙂 Hope that helps!
