  • 1 frozen pie crust thawed
  • 1 qt fresh strawberries stems removed, halved
  • 2/3 c sugar
  • 1/2 c water
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • whipped cream for topping


  • Bake the pie crust according to the listed instructions.
  • In a large bowl, crush strawberries. I typically do this with the backside of a fork. Leave some of the berry mixture thick, while allowing juice to extract from the crushing. Add sugar and vanilla. Stir well.
  • Add strawberry mixture to a saucepan and cook over medium heat. Allow mixture to reach a low boil, cooking until the fruit has softened.
  • Whisk together water and cornstarch; add to strawberry mixture and return the mixture to a boil (medium-high heat). After reaching a boil, reduce heat and allow the mixture to simmer until thickened. Stir frequently.
  • Transfer strawberry mixture to pie crust + refrigerate for 5 hours. Top with fresh whipped cream. Enjoy!
