Fresh Strawberry Pie

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I love this time of year when strawberries are plentiful, cheap, and perfectly sweet!  We snack our way through about a pound a day each May and June.  This recipe for Fresh Strawberry Pie is from my friend Heather and I must say it is DIVINE!  I love that the strawberries are never cooked and keep their firm texture and the sweetness level is just perfect.  You'll want to hurry and make this one quick while the strawberries are still good.

 The ingredients:
1 prebaked pie crust
3 cups ripe, fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and cut lengthwise into fourths
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons cornstarch
1-1/2 cups cold water
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons Strawberry Jello powder (slightly less than a small package of Jello)

Directions:  Arrange the strawberry quarters in the bottom of the baked pie shell.

In a medium saucepan off heat, stir together sugar and cornstarch.   Whisk in cold water.  Cook mixture over medium heat until thick and transparent.

 Add Jello powder and stir until Jello dissolves; about 1 minute.

Cool 2 minutes, then immediately pour over berries in pie shell.

Refrigerate until set (several hours).  Serve with fresh chilled whipped cream.  Enjoy!

That strawberry pie looks delicious! I'd love to have a slice right now. Pie is my weakness.

This recipe is also great with peaches (just substitute fresh peaches and peach jello).
