Strawberry Pie

This is the best strawberry pie, at least my family thinks so. It is really good. I have never made a strawberry pie before. I have had strawberry pie at a restaurant and always enjoyed it, but I never thought I could create the same thing at home.

I recently saw a recipe in Cook Country magazine for diner style strawberry pie that looked really easy and really good. So, I gave it a try. It was so good. I will be making this again soon. It will make a great summertime dessert. My whole family enjoyed this. I told my sister about the recipe and she made it for my mom for mother’s day and they all loved it. It is really good. If you like strawberries, I think you will love this pie.

This recipe has a couple of tricks that I think make it work. One is that it contains both frozen and fresh strawberries. The other is the amount of gelatin it has in it. It is 1 tablespoon which is a little more than one package of Knox gelatin. But it is worth is to do these steps.

I hope you enjoy.

When you try to get the recipe online they want you to sign up for a free trial of cooks illustrated. I am glad you wrote down the measurements. I missed the amount of gelatin you needed.

    Hello Lynn,

    Could I make this with fresh strawberries?

    • @Jennie Gift, I think the trick to this pie and why the texture is so good it using both the frozen and fresh strawberries. I think you could use all fresh, but it may change the pie some. I hope that helps.

  17. I just read that recipe online from Cook’s. They feature things through their emails for a short time, then they are unavailable. I am on their mailing list, but don’t subscribe to their magazine, so don’t get bugged about signing up too much.
    The combination of cooked-down with fresh strawberries seems ingenious.

    Thank you Lynn for posting this recipe! I too have been looking for this recipe after trying to get it on Cooks Country’s site and only was hounded to join their site- then still couldn’t get the recipe; so I sadly had to just give up.
    You are a life saver girl! I cannot wait to try this pie. It’s a little bit of work but I’m ready to do it.
    Thank You SO MUCH!!!

  19. I use strawberry or any red gelatin instead of the unflavored gelatin, mainly because I always have it on hand but rarely keep unflavored gelatin on hand. Living in the country means substitutions happen. ha


  1. […] Although I’m usually too lazy to deal with making pie crust, strawberry pie is one of my all-time favorite desserts. While my fridge is overflowing with berries, I need to motivate myself to make this delicious-looking recipe. […]
