Introduction: Mom's Best Strawberry Pie
My mother's recipe for strawberry pie that is wonderful any time of the year!
It does not take long to make, and is very easy too.
This recipe is written assuming you are using fresh strawberries, but can be modified to use frozen strawberries (handy when fresh are not available).
Step 1: What You Will Need...
You will need:
1 Quart Strawberries
4 Table Spoons Corn Starch
1 Cup Sugar
1 3oz Packet Strawberry Jell-O
1 Cup Water
1 Large Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Whipped Cream (Your favorite kind, and as much as you prefer)
Use Splenda sugar substitute (1 cup) and sugar free Jell-O instead!
Tastes exactly the same!
Step 2: Start Mashing...
In medium mixing bowl, mash 1/4 of strawberries and add water, sugar, and corn starch.
I recommend mixing the corn starch and water together before adding them to mixture to prevent lumps.
Step 3: Cut Em Up
Slice remaining strawberries and reserve for step 6.
Step 4: Cook the Ingredients
Put the mixture of strawberries, water, corn starch and sugar into medium sauce pan and cook until clear and thick.
Step 5: Mix in Jell-O and Cool
Remove from heat and mix in 3oz box of strawberry Jell-O and let cool 15 minutes.
Step 6: Get Ready to Pour....
Mix in remaining strawberries and pour into pie pan.
For Frozen Strawberries:
Cook entire quart of strawberries instead of adding the rest later.
The rest of the recipie is the same.
Step 7: Get Ready to Serve!
Chill completely and top with whipping cream before serving.
