This was and is one of my children’s favorite pie recipes. It’s loaded with fresh strawberries, is quite tasty and can also be made with sugar-free Jello if you want or need to cut down on some calories. However, even with regular Jello, this pie is more figure-friendly than most other pies. It’s especially pleasing as the temperatures begin rising with a dollop of some sort of cool, creamy goodness.
In a medium saucepan, whisk together:
1 cup sugar
4 TBSPS. cornstarch
1 cup water
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat.
1 small box strawberry Jello
Let cool for 30 minutes and then add 2 cups of fresh sliced strawberries. Mix together well. Pour into a baked 9” pie shell and refrigerate until firm.
Slice and serve with Cool Whip, sweetened whipped cream or Redi-Whip.
