Strawberry Pie

Pin It

Strawberries are in season!  Time to make dessert!  I wish I was the type of gal to eat strawberries for their natural wholesome properties.............but, no, I need to add sugar!

Here are the ingredients for this pie:

Pie crust:

2 cups crushed pecans
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/3 cup brown sugar
Pinch of salt

Pie Filling

1 quart strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 box strawberry Jello
1 tablespoon lemon juice

First, make sure your pecans are crushed.  Put them in your food processor if needed.  When they are crushed, put them in a bowl and add the rest of the crust ingredients.  Press the mixture into the bottom of a well greased pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Remove and let cool.

In a saucepan, crush one cup of strawberries.  I used a potato masher and it worked great.  To this, add the sugar, Jello and cornstarch.  Stir to incorporate.  Slowly add water and lemon juice.  Cook until mixture boils, then remove from heat.  Allow to cool.

Once your crust is cool, put the remaining sliced strawberries in the pie pan.

Slowly pour the Jello mixture over the strawberries.  Chill for 2-3 hours before serving.  Top with whipped cream.
