Yay! It’s strawberry picking time here in Kentucky. I love this time of year for lots of reasons, but one of my favorite reasons is because I love strawberries. While I’m not making pies these days because of a different eating plan, I still use this recipe for guests and have many fond memories of making and taking this pie to potlucks and other gatherings. I hope you enjoy it!
1 cup water
½ to ¾ cup sugar
2 and ½ Tbsp cornstarch
Pinch of salt
2 and ½ Tbsp strawberry gelatin (sugar free doesn’t work)
Drop of red food coloring (optional)
3 to 4 cups of washed strawberries (sliced if you prefer)
1 baked pie crust
Mix sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Pour in the cup of water and mix thoroughly. Put in microwave and cook for 1 minute. Stir. Continue to cook at 30 second intervals until it is thickened.
Add strawberry gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add coloring if you choose.
Let cool on the kitchen counter. When cool, fold in your strawberries and pour into a 9-inch baked pie crust.
Chill until congealed and then serve with fresh whipped cream.
YUM!!! Hope you enjoy this easy strawberry pie!
