Strawberry Pie

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

One of my favorite late spring activities is strawberry picking. We take the boys every year and pick enough strawberries to feed a small army. We eat them right out of the fridge, and I make jam, strawberry coulis, muffins, shortcake and our favorite, strawberry pie. I have to say, this is one of my favorite desserts to make . The glossy strawberries and their gorgeous red hue ! Perfection!  This recipe so easy to make. I make the crust with graham cracker crumbs , but you can definitely use a store bought crust. It makes this recipe even easier. Top the pie with whipped cream and  a bit of shaved chocolate and you have a beautiful, tasty dessert to serve to friends and family.

Strawberry Pie

1 9" pie crust or make your own
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 T cornstarch
1/4 cup strawberry gelatin (Jell-O)
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled

1.Prebake pie crust and set aside to cool to room temperature .
2. In a saucepan over medium high heat, stir together water, sugar, cornstarch and the gelatin. Bring to a gentle boil while whisking constantly,
3. When the mixture comes to a boil, remove it from the heat  and allow the glaze to cool . as it cools, it will set and thicken a bit.
4. Add your strawberries to the pie crust.
5. Stir the glaze well and gently pour it over the strawberries, coating all of the berries, and in between them as well.
6. Chill the pie in the refrigerator or a few hours. serve with whipped cream .
