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.
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.
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?
