Strawberry Pie


I loved my Mom’s Strawberry Pie and I make it often but now I take a few shortcuts to save some time and I find it comes out just as delicious.  Strawberries are beautiful this time of year…..go make your self this wonderful scrumptious pie. You can thank me later!


Strawberry Pie

 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.

Arrange strawberries in your cooled pie crust. Then pour the liquid mixture all over the strawberries making sure you get into all the cracks and crevices.  Chill pie in the refrigerator for about 3 hours before serving.  Top with whipped cream when ready to serve.
