Michigan Strawberries make AMAZING Strawberry Pies

I was craving Strawberry Pie and I asked my mom for her recipe. So we started digging in her recipe box and we found this treasure! Her mom’s handwritten recipe! I made it and it’s delicious. It’s messy, but it’s delicious! It’s worth all the steps. It’s easier than you think.


  • 1 Quart Strawberries
  • 1 Baked Pie Crust
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3½ TBS Corn Starch
  • 1 Cup Water


  • Wash and top strawberries
  • Take out 1 cup for the glaze, crush, and add 2/3 cup water
  • Simmer for 3 minutes and strain
  • Mix sugar and cornstarch with 1/3 cup water, add to juice
  • Cook until thick and clear
  • Add 2-3 drops of red food coloring, if desired, then let cool
  • Put the rest of the berries in a baked and cooled pie crust
  • Pour cooled glaze over berries
  • Chill at least 3 hours then top with whipped cream
