Strawberry Pie Recipe


How do you keep a strawberry pie from being runny?

To thicken strawberry pie filling, you’ll need to cook it on the stove and use a starch such as cornstarch (or a cornstarch substitute like tapioca starch or flour).

What is strawberry pie filling made of?

Combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt in a saucepan; stir strawberry juice into the sugar mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until clear and thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir sliced strawberries into the strawberry sauce.

Should you cook fruit pie filling before baking?

Pre-cooking your filling basically allows you to control the juiciness before it goes into the oven, so there are no major surprises when it’s time to bake. This does mean a longer prep time, both to prepare the filling and to let it cool completely. (Putting hot filling into a chilled pie crust = no go!

Why won t my strawberry pie set up?

It’s possible the sugar, water, and cornstarch mixture wasn’t cooked for long enough, resulting in a strawberry pie that hasn’t fully set. Make sure it comes to a boil, thickens, and looks significantly less cloudy before removing it from the heat.
