strawberry pie

I hardly ever bake anymore because there’s only two of us now and we usually have to eat the whole shebang.

I’ve always wanted to make a strawberry pie, but only if it was super easy.

So I searched and found a recipe on the Mr. Food site.  It’s easy, tastes good and hubby liked it.

Besides being easy, the glaze is not overly sweet and it sets nicely, plus, when sliced the pie does not fall apart like some of the pies I’ve had.

Recipe:

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup strawberry gelatin

5 cups fresh strawberries, halved.

1  (9-inch) pie crust ( I used a ready made crust)

Whipped cream or frozen whipped topping

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring sugar, water, and cornstarch to a boil; cook 1 minute or until thickened, stirring constantly.
  2. Stir in gelatin until dissolved.  Remove from heat; let cool 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Place strawberries in a large bowl and pour glaze over them. Toss gently until evenly coated, then spoon evenly into baked pie crust. Cover and chill 4 hours.  Serve with whipped cream or topping of your choice.

I know I’ll make this again!❤️❤️❤️❤️
