What can I say about this pie? I mean, besides the fact that it’s so easy to make. Besides the fact that it’s cold and refreshing and sweet and fresh and summery, and bright, and just lovely. What can I say other than I love it!
1 cup sugar
1 cup very cold water
3 tablespoons Jell-o Strawberry flavor (powder) gelatin mix
3 cups fresh ripe strawberries, cut in half
3 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
1 (9 inch) ready-made or homemade pie crust, baked and cooled
Rinse and hull strawberries. Slice them in half or quarters depending how large they are. Set aside. Bake your pie crust and set aside to completely cook.
In a saucepan over medium high heat, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and 3 tablespoons of the gelatin powder. Add cold water and stir until mixture dissolves. Continue to whisk constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and allow liquid to cool. Keep in mind, the colder the water the quicker the mixture will begin to set. Continue to whisk it as it cools so it begins to thicken but can still be poured.
