Strawberry Pie

This recipe first came from the grandson of my neighbor.  I asked if he would share and lucky for me, he did.  (Thanks Chris & Lori!).  I make this every year, when the strawberries are fresh.  And it's totally healthy, as it has strawberries.  Okay, not really.  But it's good.

Strawberry Pie

1 cup water (although hers called for sprite)
1/2 cup sugar (although hers called for 1 cup sugar)
5 Tbsp cornstarch
3oz strawberry Jello
 1qt sliced strawberries.
Whipped cream.

First, make a pie crust, prebake at 450 for 8 min.  How to, here.

Then in a saucepan, whisk water, sugar and cornstarch.  Bring to boil, add jello.  Whisk and boil for 2 minutes.  Take off heat.  Mix Strawberries into pan.  Pour into the cooked baking shell.  Refrigerate.  Top with whipped cream.

And you think my kids are interested?

 Yeah, I'm *that* mama who made them eat salads for dinner, but then let them pig out on dessert.  Why not?!


  1. Well, it seems you have your priorities straight. :-)

  2. Yummy! At least you balanced out the dessert with a salad for dinner :) haha!
