Fresh Strawberry Pie
Begin by adding your cornstarch and sugar into a small bowl. Whisk them together until combined.
Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to medium and whisk in your sugar/cornstarch mixture.
Continue to whisk until the mixture thickens and becomes clear in appearance. Once this happens, remove it from the heat and stir in red jello.
Allow the mixture to cool to around room temperature. In the meantime, arrange your berries within your pie crust.
Once the mixture has cooled, pour it over the berries and set your pie in the fridge to solidify. This will take about four hours.
After four or more hours, remove the pie from the fridge and serve. Preferably with cool whip.
Just be sure to get a slice because this pie goes fast, especially in my house! We LOVE this retro style jello pie. I’ve even thought about adding in other types of berries to the mixture such as blueberries or blackberries, but I just haven’t wanted to mess with a classic. . yet. Next time! 🙂
