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

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • Fresh mint, optional

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 264 calories, 7 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 5 mg cholesterol, 125 mg sodium, 49 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° 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. Yield: 6-8 servings.
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.

Great, easy recipe. I have always struggled with strawberry pies being too soupy, but it was not the case with this recipe. Each slice of pie held its shape great.

If you like a very sweet pie you may need to add more sugar than the recipe calls for, unless you are using fresh-picked strawberries. I thought it tasted great as the recipe was, though.

We garnished this with fresh homemade whipped cream and it was delicious.

The best, and oh, so easy! It's so nice to make a fruit pie from fresh fruit, and make the glaze, rather than purchase it. This is a keeper. My husband gives it 5 stars also! And it makes me look good! :)

This was so quick and easy. I put in 5 cups of strawberries because 4 cups was too few

for a pie. We loved it. It cut perfectly and did not fall apart! Excellent!
