When strawberries begin to go on sale, when they are at their cheapest, we buy a pound or two and I make this scrumptious dessert. Jason is not normally a fan of pie, but this one is in his dreams! This pie is the essence of summertime with its fruity sweetness, cool smoothness, and crispy, flaky crust.
1 pie crust baked
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar (you may want to make it 1 cup if you use a whole 2 lbs. of strawberries)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 3 oz. box strawberry gelatin
Add strawberries. Pour into pie shell, refrigerate until set. (about 3-4 hours) Serve with ice cream or whipped topping.
So, what about you? What is your favorite special occasion or special season recipe? I’d love to hear from you.
