Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare pie crust: either, bake a pastry shell (traditional and tasty), or prepare a graham cracker, or oreo cookie pie shell -- your choice
  • 2Wash, de-stem, and cut three cups of berries in thick vertical slices (about 3 per berry) can also simply leave whole, or cut in half (vertically) to make them easier to distribute, and place them in the prepared pie shell.
  • 3Make Glaze: Crush 1 cup of fresh strawberries and cook (low boil) with the water for 5 minutes
  • 4Strain to remove the seeds
  • 5Put the cornstarch in 4 Tbsp cold water to blend before adding to hot juice
  • 6Combine the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and butter with the juice and cook for 3-5 minutes to thicken
  • 7Pour the glaze over the berries in the pie shell and set in fridge to cool for at least an hour.
