Spring Sweets: Gigi’s Glistening Strawberry Pie

12 Apr

Easy and delicious, this strawberry pie is the perfect chilled dish to eat on a hot day.

What you need:


  • 1 baked pie shell (as per directions on package) and cooled to room temp.
  • 1/2 – 1 quart strawberries, hulled and sliced to size preference.
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 reg. size box strawberry jello.

What you do:

  • Mix water, sugar, and cornstarch and cook over medium heat until thick or until it is clear.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add strawberry jello and mix well.
  • Let cool.
  • When cool, pour jello mixture into piecrust and add strawberries.
  • Top with whipped topping.

Sorry for the lack of pictures this time around; all the ones I took had an odd yellow tint to them, so I figured I’d rather you see how good they turn out.

Gigi tends to leave the strawberries large; you can try cutting them into tiny pieces or have varying sizes. This recipe can also be altered by adding different fruit instead of strawberries; for instance, kiwi would be a great addition to make a strawberry-kiwi pie.
