Sky-High Strawberry Pie


  • 3 quarts fresh strawberries, divided
  • 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2⁄3 cup water
  • Red food coloring, optional
  • 1 deep-dish pastry shell (10 inches), baked
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix


  1. In a large bowl, mash enough berries to measure 3 cups. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the mashed berries and water; mix well.

  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; add food coloring if desired. Pour into a large bowl. Chill for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is just slightly warm.

  3. Fold in the remaining berries. Spoon into pie shell. Chill for 2-3 hours. In a small mixing bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Sprinkle pudding mix over cream and whip until stiff. Garnish pie with cream mixture.
