“A chocolate-painted baked pie crust prevents this pie from getting soggy and adds a wonderful flavor complementing the strawberries! Serve with whipped cream. I am adding blueberries just around the inner edge of the pie crust after the filling has been added to create a nice red, white, and blue theme for our 4th of July celebration!” - by jenni
Original recipe yields 1 deep-dish pie
- Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Press pie crust pastry into a 1/2-inch deep dish pie plate. Prick bottom and sides of pastry with fork.
- Bake in the preheated oven until lightly brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
- Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, 1 to 3 minutes. Paint melted chocolate in the bottom and inside of cooled pie crust. Place chocolate-painted crust in freezer to harden the chocolate, about 30 minutes.
- Place the prettiest strawberry, cut-side down, in the center of the chocolate crust. Arrange as many attractive strawberries as possible around the center strawberry, so they appear as circles around the center.
- Mash the remaining strawberries in a bowl; transfer to a saucepan. Add sugar and lemon juice; bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
- Whisk ginger ale and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; gradually stir into boiling strawberry mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for about 5 minutes.
- Spoon strawberry sauce over strawberries in pie shell. Chill in refrigerator until pie is set, at least 8 hours.

"I have a standard strawberry pie I've been making for years, but I like trying new recipes, and this was was great. I followed the recipe to a T, and it came out perfect. If you refrigerate the pie f..." See moreor a few hours, the recommended amount of cornstarch is perfect. Next time I make this pie, I will pour the starwberry mixture in a vita mixer so the sauce would be smoother. The taste was divine, esp. the painted chocolate piecrust. This one is a keeper!"
"I have never liked traditional strawberry pie, I always found it way too sweet and way too fattening. I was incredibly worried about this one, especially when my strawberry goo thickened up pretty muc..." See moreh immediately and I knew it wasn't going to survive 12-14 minutes on the burner. I took it off after 5 minutes and tasted it; my test taste must've had a pocket of lemon juice, it was terribly sour. However, this recipe turned out AMAZING! The lemon juice must've calmed down after cooling in the fridge (mine set in less than 2 hours). I never keep blueberries around because I tend to forget I have them and they go bad fairly quickly, so I used sliced kiwi instead. I can picture myself sitting on the beach drinking my frozen daiquiri and eating a slice of this beauty. The only thing I would do differently next time is use less chocolate (I used my own Wilton chocolate wafers and overdid it a bit)."
