Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie

"For my mother's 70th birthday and Mother's Day, I made two of these strawberry pies instead of a cake. Since it was mid-May in Texas, the berries were absolutely perfect. It was a memorable occasion for the whole family. --Sue A. Jurack"

  1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450 degrees F for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a 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.
  3. Meanwhile, arrange strawberries in the crust. Pour gelatin mixture over berries. Refrigerate until set. Garnish with mint if desired.

Footnotes

  • TEST KITCHEN TIP Sue often uses whole fresh strawberries and arranges them pointed side up in the pastry shell for a different presentation. It also is a time-saver because she doesn't have to slice the berries.

This was okay. I should've known it would be very gelatinish. I like the more traditional glaze.

EXCELLENT!! Couple of things: The gelatin mixture seemed to thicken within 30 seconds, so I removed it quickly from the heat. And there was a small window of time (when it sat in the fridge) b...

Awesome and way easy to make! Everyone loved it. I used a puff pastry bottom and a square pan and it was a hit!! Fresh and sweet.

the pie turned out very well. the recipe can also be used w/other types of fruit with their matching gelatins (ie - blueberry)

This was a hit at our Memorial Day cookout. The pie set up nicely and was absolutely gorgeous. I used a prepared shortbread crust, and I'll definitely do that again next time. I chopped the s...

I made this strawberry pie recipe yesterday. It is reminiscent of a wonderful strawberry pie served at a Pittsburgh area restaurant chain. Just top with whipped cream & serve. My family loved i...

Per someone elses review I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/4 cups of water and i agree with that person. The pie was more than firm enough and anymore sugar would had made it entirely to sweet! But o...

Excellent recipe! I only substituted to make a sugar-free pie. Substitute Stevia or Splenda or the sugar and Sugar-Free Jell-O. When using the sugar-free ingredients, it works better to add the ...
