This is an old recipe. I was happy to come across it at just the right time.
Clean and half about a quart of fresh strawberries.
Have a single pie shell ready --a regular baked shell or a cookie crumb crust is good too, depending on your sweet tooth,
Mix together in a cooking pan:
- 1 1/2 cup sugar*
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- a 3 oz. package of strawberry jello
- 1 1/2 cup water
Cook over medium high heat and stir constantly until the mixture turns from a milky red to a clear red.
Allow the mixture to cool.
Place halved strawberries into prepared pie shell. Refrigerate to set before serving.
* I think this is a ridiculous amount of sugar so I just use half, 3/4 cup, and no one has ever complained.
It goes without saying that one piles real whipped cream on top to serve.
