5-Ingredient Strawberry Pie

  • Prep Time: 20
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 4 hours with chilling
  • Yield: Serves 8 1x


An easy, delicious strawberry pie with no Jello, just a few simple ingredients. Use a storebought crust for a quick strawberry pie!


  • 1 storebought pie crust
  • 6 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pinch salt


  1. Cook the pie crust to package directions. Allow to cool while you make the filling.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the strawberries, cornstarch, sugar, and salt to coat evenly.
  3. Transfer the strawberry mixture to a large nonstick pan and turn the heat to medium. Allow the berries to heat through and release some liquid, stirring every minute or so.
  4. When the sugar/strawberry liquid/cornstarch combine and bubble, turn the heat off and let the mixture cool and thicken for about 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer the strawberry mixture to the prepared pie crust and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight until firm. Slice carefully and serve!
  6. Or, like, eat the whole thing yourself for safety's sake.


Make your own pie crust if you're into that sort of thing! Use an 8-inch pie plate, or add a cup or two more strawberries for larger pie dishes.

I quartered my berries, but you could halve yours or even leave them whole for a super pretty presentation.

Whipped cream, extra berries, and fresh mint on top are amazing here!

This is a lightly sweet pie. Add more sugar if you'd like, up to 1/3 cup more.
