For the Pie Crust:

  • 1 pre-made pie crust (or your favorite homemade crust)

For the Strawberry Filling:

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Red food coloring (optional, for a more vibrant color)

For the Whipped Cream Topping:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Prepare the Pie Crust: If using a pre-made pie crust, follow the package instructions for blind baking or bake the crust until it’s golden brown. If using a homemade crust, prepare and bake it according to your recipe.

Prepare the Strawberry Filling:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Gradually add the water while whisking to create a smooth mixture.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and becomes clear.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and a few drops of red food coloring, if using, until the color is vibrant.
  4. Gently fold the halved strawberries into the cooked filling mixture until they are well coated.

Assemble the Pie: 5. Pour the strawberry filling into the pre-baked pie crust, spreading it evenly.

Chill: 6. Place the pie in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2-3 hours, or until the filling is set, and the pie is cooled.

Prepare the Whipped Cream Topping: 7. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.

Serve: 8. Just before serving, spread the whipped cream over the top of the strawberry filling. You can pipe the whipped cream for a decorative touch.

Slice and Enjoy: 9. Slice into the Big Boy’s Fresh Strawberry Pie and relish the burst of summer flavors in every delicious bite.

This pie is not just a dessert; it’s a celebration of the season’s bounty and a testament to the joy that fresh strawberries bring. Indulge and savor the sweetness of summer encapsulated in each luscious slice!
