Strawberries are in season here on our farm…..and I don’t want the season to end. If only the season would last just a little bit longer. A Jersey strawberry is like no other. Sweet, juicy and red through and through. This fresh strawberry pie recipe is the perfect way to celebrate.

I think you all know by now how much I love eating the strawberries we grow here on our farm. I think I made it pretty clear in my previous strawberry recipes and all my Instagram posts and stories.

How To Make Classic Strawberry Pie

A few months ago, I share my no-fail perfect pie crust recipe. I love this pie crust recipe because it is just like its name — perfect. I prebaked the crust for 15 minutes at 425° until the crust is golden. 

Psst….you can skip this step and use a store-bought crust if you want. I won’t tell anyone. We are all busy and sometimes, a quick shortcut saves the day.

Next, clean and hull six cups of fresh strawberries.

Once the strawberries are cleaned. I crush one cup of the cleaned strawberries and add them to a saucepan along with the sugar, cornstarch, water and lemon juice in a saucepan.

I cooked the mixture until it boils and thickens. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes. After the strawberry mixture has cooled, add half of remaining strawberries to bottom of prebaked pie shell.

Spoon half of the cooked mixture over the strawberries in the pie shell. Coat evenly. Then add remaining strawberries and top with cooked strawberry mixture. Refrigerate for 2-6 hours.

I love to cover the top of this Classic Strawberry Pie with whipped cream. I mean who doesn’t love strawberries with whipped cream? It’s totally up to you if you want to do this. Some just like to add a dollop but the more whipped cream, the better in my book.
