Summer Strawberry Jello Pie

Servings 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 baked 9-inch pie shell
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 small box strawberry jello {3 oz. size}
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Wash and hull strawberries. Place them upside down in cooked pie shell and set aside. In a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, pour in water, cornstarch and sugar. Stir until mostly dissolved. Microwave 1-2 minutes until mixture bubbles up and thickens. {It should turn translucent.} Stir in strawberry jello powder and pour over strawberries. Spread over top and refrigerate until set, 2-3 hours.

  2. In a large bowl, whip cream, sugar and vanilla together until stiff peaks form. Spread over top pie and garnish with more fresh strawberries. Serve cold.

Recipe Notes

Recipe tips: In my opinion everything is better with whipped cream but growing up we ate this pie without it. It's delicious either way.
