Mom’s Strawberry Pie

Mom’s Strawberry Pie

Getting Started

What You'll Need

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1- 3 oz. box (regular) strawberry jello
  • 1 – 1 ½ quart fresh strawberries (depends on the size of the berries)
  • 1 pre-baked pie shell

Method

1

Combine the sugar, cornstarch and water in a medium size sauce pan and cook over medium to medium high heat till thick; stirring often. (I use a wire whisk to start with then a large wooden spoon)
Remove from heat and stir in the jello; set aside to cool, stirring occasionally to prevent a film from forming.

2

Clean and slice the strawberries; when the sauce is cool add the strawberries and pour into a cooled baked pie shell. Cover with wax paper and refrigerate till set; 4-5 hours or overnight

Don’t forget the Whipped Cream
