If any of you have ever had the strawberry pie at Shoney’s or Big Boy restaurants, this is likely looking pretty darn familiar. As well it should because it is very similar to that pie
Using my quick and easy mix in the pan pie crust, you can throw together this gorgemous pie quick as a wink! This would be a beautiful dessert on any table—especially at family gatherings such as Easter, reunions, Mother’s day, or cook outs!
Fresh Strawberry Pie
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 tablespoons strawberry gelatin mix
1 pint fresh strawberries
3 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
1 pie crust, cooked and cooled (The recipe for my crust may be found here I made a recipe and a half for a bit thicker crust)
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and dry gelatin mix by stirring well. Add water and cook until thick and clear over medium high heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Set aside and let cool. Wash and hull strawberries, cut in half, and arrange over pie crust. When filling is cool, pour over strawberries, and chill pie until ready to serve. Serve with whipped cream.
