Sweet as pie

 I've shared this recipe before, but with Strawberries in season now, I thought I'd post again.

Plant City Florida has THE most delicious strawberries, and right now they are plump and sweet. It's a perfect time to make a Strawberry Pie! The original recipe called for "Wild" Strawberry jello, but it's no longer available. So here is my version.

Cast of characters includes -

1 quart Fresh Strawberries
Strawberry Jello (large package)
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cups water

Combine cornstarch, sugar and water. Cook over medium high heat - stirring constantly until thick and bubbly. Stir in 3/4 package Strawberry Jello and remove from heat. Let cool.

In a deep precooked pie shell, layer washed and hulled strawberries. Pour Jello mixture over strawberries making sure all the strawberries are covered. Refrigerate. (I find leaving the berries whole keeps the pie from getting soggy)

Serve with a dollop of Whipped Cream

Looks great but it will be awhile before we get strawberries here in Wisconsin as we still have several inch of snow on the ground. Will save it until the time is ripe, if you will excuse the pun!!
