This is a wonderful summer pie and is my husbands most requested pie. He has me make it every year for his birthday instead of cake. It is a light and wonderful dessert!
- 1 1/2 lbs. strawberries cleaned and quartered or whole
- 2 TBSP strawberry jello
- 3 TBSP cornstarch
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 baked pie shell
Bake pie shell and let cool. Arrange berries in pie shell. Mix jello, cornstarch, tepid water and sugar in a saucepan. Mix until cornstarch is dissolved. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes until thickened, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Remove from heat and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Pour glaze over pie shell and chill for several hours, until firm, before serving. Serve with whipped cream.
