Strawberry Pie Filling or Topping Recipe

By Tammy Algood Published: April 1, 2016

  • Yield: 1 9-inch pie



  1. Place the mashed strawberries and water in a saucepan and put over medium-high heat. Bring to boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Pressing through a fine-meshed sieve, strain the juice and discard the remaining pulp. Add enough water to make 1 cup of juice.
  2. Add the juice, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt to the saucepan and return to medium-high heat. Stir constantly and bring to a boil. Continue to stir until thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Stir in the remaining strawberries and use as desired.
