Fresh Southern Strawberry Pie


Nothing says sweet summer time better than a Fresh Southern Strawberry pie. It was always one of my favorites as a child and is always a crowd pleaser.


INGREDIENTS
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries

DIRECTIONS
Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until slightly cooled.
Meanwhile, arrange strawberries in the crust. Pour gelatin mixture over berries. Refrigerate until set.

Yield: 6-8 servings
