Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie

Desserts | May 12, 2009 | By

It’s officially strawberry season! When I think of strawberries, I think fresh strawberry pie. Mostly because it’s super easy to make, yet totally delicious. To make it extra easy, buy a pre-made pie crust….don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.

fresh strawberry pie


1 pre-made pie crust, baked according to directions
2 small baskets of fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice

for the glaze:

1 8-12oz jar strawberry preserves…the amount doesn’t have to be exact
2 tablespoons triple sec, or any other orange liquor
1 teaspoon lemon zest


Cut strawberries in half and place in a bowl with sugar and lemon juice. Let macerate for five minutes. Meanwhile, make glaze by placing all ingredients in a medium size saucepan over medium heat. Stir and combine just until preserves melt into a thick glaze.

Strain juices from bottom of bowl and combine glaze with strawberries. Dump strawberries into pre-baked pie crust. Serve with a huge dollop of fresh whipped cream!
