The Easiest Strawberry Pie....

Johns birthday was early June and he LOVES strawberries.  He often has strawberry shortcake rather than a traditional birthday cake, but this year I made my "Easy Strawberry Pie" for him:



The most important part is to find the largest strawberries you can find:



This can be made in a "pre-baked" pie crust, but we like it in a graham cracker crust!


Simply place the smaller berries on the bottom and save those big beauties for the top, trying to get all tips pointed upwards.  Of course you can cut the berries into small pieces, but I like to keep them whole - another reason this is easy to make!!


Simply bring to a boil 1 1/2 c water, 3/4 c sugar and 2 T cornstarch and boil til it thickens.


Stir in one 3 oz box of strawberry jello and pour over the berries, making sure the glaze covers each berry:


Refrigerate for a few hours....


...and enjoy!!


Once set, the pie slices and holds its shape.


This was John's birthday surprise....


...and I hope his birthday "wishes" are that I find some treasures at the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale this summer - LOL:



A topping of whipped cream is a MUST:


And it is delish!

  5. Wow, love how firm it stands, and looks good too. I love strawberries too, but my other half doesn't, so I'd be eating the entire thing myself!
