Fresh Amish Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie Recipe

I remember when I was a child if I ever got the lucky option of choosing the dessert, this was the one for me.  The fresh strawberries just molded into place with the gelatin glaze.  Smothered, of course, in a heaping pile of whipped cream, that was always my number one pick.   This pie, to me, just tastes like summer.  If summer had a taste, it would be strawberry pie.

This is one of those recipes you will want to start early in the day.  Since it will need to chill for a few hours to set.  So you better get started!!  You just need a few ingredients to kick things off:

How to Make Amish Strawberry Pie

When you think about biting into a slice of strawberry pie, you might also think that it would be difficult to make.  How could it not be?  I am here to tell you that it is one of the easiest pies to make.  You just need one thing.  Patience.

To make this strawberry pie recipe start with a premade pie crust (like this Amish Never Fail Pie Crust Recipe ).  Grab a saucepan and stir together the water, corn starch, and sugar until it is fully dissolved.  Keep stirring until it comes to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.  Remove the pan from the heat and then add in the gelatin.  You can set this aside until it is cooled.  Then, gently stir in the strawberries and pour this into the pie crust.  Chill this overnight to completely set the pie.  When you are ready to serve it, add some whipped topping.

You can use the store-bought kind but if you want an authentic whipped topping, here is a quick and easy recipe:

  • 3.5 cups chilled heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar

Pour the whipped cream into a bowl (a chilled metal bowl is best) and whip until stiff peaks start to form.  Slowly add in the sugar, about a 1/4 cup at a time. Store any unused portion in an airtight container for up to 10 hours. When ready to use, whisk again for 10 to 15 seconds.

  1. This is one recipe that I made that was the biggest fail ever. I followed step by step the directions. Number one, a quart of strawberries is way too many. It should be a pint instead. After cooking the glaze, the directions said to let it cool. After about 30 minutes it was a glop of a mess. It quickly gels and is no longer able to be poured. I still put the glaze and strawberries in a large glass container and mixed with my hands the best I could. It was twice the amount needed for a deep dish pie plate. Was going to serve tonight but have to keep here for me to nibble on. Not a pretty pie at all. You tell me where I went wrong? A waste of time and money making this. And again, I followed the instructions and the amounts were on spot. Never deviated from the directions.
