Recipe Of The Week: Strawberry Pie

My friend Kelly, wanted a fresh strawberry pie. Strawberries were on major sale that week, and another friend, a chef, had a great family recipe. This gave us all a reason to get together and make some strawberry pies!

Strawberry Pie

2 8-inch pie shells, baked
2 1/2 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup sugar
2 Tbs. cornstarch
1 cup boiling water
1 3oz. pkg. Strawberry gelatin

In a saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch. Add water and cook until thick. Remove from heat, add gelatin and stir. Let stand until room temperature. Layer strawberries in pie shell. Pour cooled gelatin mix over. Refrigerate until set. Serve with whipped cream.

From my experience: My friend, the chef, made these pies and taught us as she completed each step. It was pretty simple, and tasted awesome. It is best if eaten within two days. Enjoy!
