Creamy and fluffy, the strawberry filling comes together with the help of strawberry-flavored gelatin, water, sugar and cornstarch.

Serves6

Chilling Time8 hr

Cooking MethodNo Bake, Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3-ounce) package strawberry gelatin
  • 1 1/2 pound fresh strawberries
  • whole berries, whipped cream and mint to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven and bake pie crust as package directs, being sure to prick the crust on the bottom and sides with the tines of a fork before baking. Allow to cool completely while preparing filling.

  2. In a small saucepan on medium heat combine water, sugar and cornstarch and place over medium heat, stirring with a whisk until thickened, about 1 minute after it comes to a boil. Whisk in the gelatin until mixture is smooth and gelatin is completely dissolved. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.

  3. Wash berries and dry well , then remove stems. Choose 6 to 8 perfect berries to use for garnish and set those aside. Cut remaining berries in half or quarters, depending on their size.

  4. Pour the gelatin mixture into a large bowl, reserving 2 tablespoons, and add the cut berries, stirring very gently until all are coated. Spoon those berries into the pie shell, then, to garnish, dip the remaining whole berries in the remaining gelatin mixture and arrange in the center of the pie, pointed tips up.

  5. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill for 4 hours up to 8 hours before serving. When ready to serve, garnish with whipped cream dollops and a sprig of fresh mint if desired.

What a refreshing and tasty treat this would be in the summer time or anytime for that matter. You can probably even make it with different fruit and jello flavor combinations as well and serve on any occasion. I have to wonder though, is the corn starch and sugar necessary? I mean...Jello is usually sweetened and doesn't it set up naturally with the gelatin? Hmmmm...will the results still be the same if I didn't use cornstarch?

I remember the Big Boy (in my area it was Shoney's Big Boy) restaurants selling this pie. You could buy a slice or the whole pie...which came with a huge can of whipped cream. I am thankful I learned to make it because there is no Shoney's near me now. Perfect the way it is, but I prefer slicing my berries into halves, especially if the berries are quite large.

This looks like it came right out of my childhood.

I love strawberry pies! This looks delicious.

This could be covered by lemon cream too.

This pie could be covered with lemon cream.

If you give me really the dough ,I cover it with ,lemon patissier.Yummy healthy.
