Ingredients
  • 1 9" pie shell, fully baked and cooled completely
  • 1 cup (220g) sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt (just trust me!)
  • 1 cup (235ml) water
  • 1 (3oz)(85g) box strawberry jello
  • 2 pounds (910g) fresh strawberries; washed, hulled, and cut in half
Instructions
  1. Mix the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and water in a medium-sized saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in jello until completely dissolved. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until slightly cooled.

  2. Place strawberries in baked pie shell and arrange as desired. Pour jello mixture over the top of the strawberries making sure to cover every strawberry. Refrigerate until set. If desired serve with whipped cream.

Recipe Notes
  1. Use strawberries that are in season for the best flavor.
  2. Do NOT use frozen strawberries....they will not work.
  3. Store this pie in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  4. Eat this pie within 3 days. The longer it sits the juices from the strawberries will make the crust soggy.
  5. Be sure to let the jello filling cool for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator before pouring over the strawberries. I didn't let mine cool long enough (I was in a hurry to take pictures!) and you can see from the pictures it didn't stay on the strawberries but sank to the bottom instead. If it's too thin it will also run through the holes poked in the crust.
  6. To make a deep dish pie:
    • Use 3 lbs strawberries
    • cups sugar
    • cups water
    • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1 (6oz) box strawberry jello
