Strawberry Pie

IMG_1580

This recipe is everywhere!  Do a search for Strawberry Pie recipes and over and over you will find this recipe popping up.  And with good reason.  It’s quick and easy and of course delicious.  It reminds me of the Strawberry Pie that we used to get at the Big Boy. (I think they are also called Shoney’s.)   I haven’t eaten in a Big Boy in I’ll bet more than twenty years.  So this pie definitely took me back. 

Here’s the recipe:

Strawberry Pie

Pillsbury Pie Crust

Whipped cream

4 tablespoons strawberry jello mix
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 pint fresh strawberries

Place one pre-made pie crust in a pie plate and bake it off according to the package directions.  Set it aside to cool.

While the pie crust is baking, wash and slice the  strawberries and set aside in a bowl.

Bring the water, sugar, and cornstarch to a boil using a whisk to stir.  Stir until the mixture thickens and turns clear.  Add the strawberry jello and whisk it in.

It will be a thick, red, and glossy.  Gently fold the the strawberries and the glaze together.  Transfer the glazed strawberries to pie crust and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve with whipped cream.

Strawberries have about run their course for this season but you can still find good deals on them but not for much longer I would suspect. I should have tried this recipe out earlier in the season. I’ll be ready next year!
