Strawberry Pie

The best way to eat fresh strawberries?  In a pie!  This one is easy to make. Make your own pie crust or buy one (I won't tell!)


Strawberry Pie

1-1/2 cups cool water
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 (3 oz) pkg strawberry Jell-O (or you can use sugar free)
1 pound (or as much as you can fit in your pie crust) strawberries, hulled and halved
1 pie shell

Pre-bake pie shell as recipe calls or as instructed from box or package.  Cool.

Meanwhile, in saucepan mix together water and cornstarch with a whisk.  Cook until clear, it will thicken. Remove from heat and add Jell-O.  Let cool for at least 10 minutes.  You don't want it to cook your strawberries.
 Add strawberries to cooled pie crust.
Pour Jell-O mix over strawberries taking care to make sure the strawberries have a little layer of the mix on them.  

Chill until set. Serve with whipped topping if you like.

  3. Strawberry Season, Yeah! I was out picking berries and eating them faster than I could put them in the bowl. Might be awhile, before they make it to the house! When they do, this pie will be on the agenda...Thanks for the great recipe.
    Blessings, Shari
