Strawberry Pie Ingredients

Strawberry Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 unbaked rolled pie crust
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3-ounce) box strawberry gelatin mix
  • 1½ pounds fresh strawberries, washed, dried, hulled, and halved
  • Whipped topping (optional garnish)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

STRAWBERRIES: Add a mixture of fresh berries along with the sweet strawberries in this simple strawberry pie.

How to Make This Strawberry Pie Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick spray.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

You can substitute dry beans for pie weights. Just make sure to put a layer of foil between them and the crust.

STEP TWO: Unroll pie crust and place it in the pie plate. Prick the pie crust with a fork. Line the pie crust with aluminum foil sprayed with nonstick spray. Fill the foil with pie weights. Bake pie crust for 10 minutes.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your pie crust as the suggested baking time approaches.

STEP THREE: Remove the pie plate from the oven. Remove the pie weights and foil. 

STEP FOUR: Using a pastry brush, brush the beaten egg whites on the inside of the pie shell. Be sure to brush the sides of the crust and the bottom of the crust. Bake the coated pie crust for another 8 to 10 minutes until the crust is golden. Remove and allow the baked crust to cool.

PRO TIP:

The egg white coating keeps the pie crust from becoming soggy.

STEP FIVE: Using a 4 to 5-quart heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the granulated sugar and cornstarch. Whisk in the water.

STEP SEVEN: Remove the mixture from the heat. Sprinkle with the strawberry gelatin and whisk until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Allow the glaze to sit for 5 minutes.

STEP EIGHT: Arrange the strawberries in the bottom of the pre-baked pie crust.

PRO TIP:

You can use a straw to hull the strawberries. Center the straw on the bottom of the strawberry and gently force the straw through the center. I suggest using a metal straw.

STEP NINE: Pour the glaze over the top of the strawberries. Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Add whipped topping to the top of the pie before serving.
