{ Strawberry Pie }





The husband loves strawberry pie.

Like, super duper loves.

Specifically, his Grammy's strawberry pie.

I love his Grammy's strawberry pie too, ya know why?

Because it's quick. It's easy. It's inexpensive.

What could be better?


Here's whatcha need:

Grammy's Strawberry Pie

1 Baked Pie Shell (store bought, or this is a great recipe)
1 Container of Strawberries, washed and fully dry *
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Water
3 Tablespoons Corn Starch
3 Tablespoons Strawberry Jello (powder)**

*you can use more berries, if you like. For this pie, I used 2 containers.

**store the rest in a ziploc baggie for making this again! 

On the stovetop, add all ingredients into a heavy saucepan. Stir together. Heat over medium heat. 

It will be kind of a milky red


Allow to boil and thicken, stirring constantly. As it begins to thicken, it will turn a clear, bright red.

When thickened, remove from heat.

Thicken. There, I felt the need to say it four times in a row.

I feel better now.

Allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes.

While cooling, assemble your berries in your baked crust.
You may choose to cut them, or use them whole.

I like using whole berries.

Pour the gel over your berries.

(You can see the consistency of the gel in this photo)


Then, put into refrigerator until set. This will take several hours.

This is the hardest part of the whole recipe.

The waiting.


Oh my gersh, it's so dang prettttttttttttty!

And tasty too!



When set, cut, add whipped topping and... devour!

This is SO much better than the red, gooshy bagged stuff you find in the store.

If given the chance, my hubster would eat a whole recipe of this.

WITHOUT berries.

This is the same gel I used here, in Aunt Rosie's Strawberry Delight.

You should totally make that too.

Man, I LOVE strawberry season!
