Here is another recipe from all the strawberries we picked up while at the Florida Strawberry festival over this past weekend. This pie is quick, easy, and so good.

Fresh Strawberry Pie

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
3 cups strawberries
1 cup water
1/2 cup water
1 package gelatin
3 tablespoons cornstarch
about 10 cups fresh whole strawberries, enough to fill 2 – 9 inch pie shells

2 baked deep dish pie shells (I use pre-made roll out pie crusts)

freshly whipped cream

Directions:

1. Combine gelatin with 1/2 cup cold water in a small bowl. Set aside to let gelatin soften. Combine 1 cup water and cornstarch in saucepan. Stir until cornstarch dissolves. Add strawberries and sugar. Use a potato masher to mash up strawberries. Bring to a boil, and cook until it thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add gelatin dissolved in 1/2 cup water.

2. Let cool. Bake pie shell and let cool. When pie shell is cool, fill with fresh berries, then pour over cooled gelatin mixture. Garnish with freshly whipped cream.

Makes 2 – 9 inch pies
