Strawberry pie can be prepared in a variety of ways, but basically it consists of a baked shortcrust pie shell filled with fresh strawberries and a mixture of sugar, water and cornstarch or gelatine to thicken.
The pastry is prepared and cooked beforehand and then allowed to cool before filling with the strawberry mixture. If the pastry is not cool enough, the filling could make it soggy and wet.
In most recipes the strawberries are not cooked, although there is no reason why they shouldn't be baked in the oven and turned into a warm pie.
Below are three recipes for strawberry pie, each slightly different from the other. Try each one to see which you prefer.
