This is the prettiest strawberry pie. Choose berries that are large and of similar shape. Stand them up in a pre-baked pie crust and pour a strawberry gelatin glaze evenly over the top. Chill until set and serve with a bowl of freshly whipped cream.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 (8 inch) pie shells, baked
- 2 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
In a saucepan, mix together the sugar and corn starch; make sure to blend corn starch in completely. Add boiling water, and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Add gelatin mix, and stir until smooth. Let mixture cool to room temperature.
Place strawberries in baked pie shells; position berries with points facing up. Pour cooled gel mixture over strawberries.
Refrigerate until set. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
