Fresh strawberries are stirred into a cooked strawberry gelatin filling and spooned into a pre-baked crumb crust. This pretty, sweet pie is then chilled and served with whipped cream. Or if you like, make this pie with peaches.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 4 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored gelatin
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 quart fresh strawberries, hulled
- 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
In a large saucepan combine gelatin power, cornstarch, sugar and boiling water. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils and thickens. Let cool to room temperature while you prepare the berries.
Add berries to the cooled gelatin mixture. Stir gently to coat, then pour all into crust. Chill uncovered for 1 hour, then cover and store in refrigerator.
