Strawberry Filling

  • 3 quarts fresh strawberries, quartered and divided
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup water


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, about 10 crackers
  • 4-6 tablespoons melted butter
  • whipped topping (optional garnish)


Strawberry Filling

  • Hull and 2 quarts of strawberries and add to a blender. Puree until fine.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the strawberry puree, sugar, cornstarch, and water.
  • Bring to a low boil over medium heat (until it just starts to bubble) until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. (You will notice when it changes consistency.)
  • Remove from heat and add remaining chopped strawberries and stir well. Prepare graham cracker crust while this is cooling a bit.


  • Add 4 tablespoons of melted butter to graham crackers crumbs and using a fork, mix well. You want every crumb coated in the butter as this will be the glue that holds it together. If it seems to be dry at all, add remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter and mix again.
  • Pour the graham cracker crumbs into a prepared 9-inch pie dish. Pat them flat with your hand and then use a kitchen glass to press flatter. Start at the center and work out to the sides.
  • Now pour the strawberry mixture into the pie dish with the graham cracker crust and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • Top with whipped topping before serving. (optional)



PLEASE NOTE! I forgot to show me adding the sugar in the video.
