Sensational Strawberry Pie

Strawberry season is upon us, y’all!  And Jacob and I have already been to the patch to prove it.  Two weeks ago I joined him on his class field trip and we came back with more strawberries than we could ever eat.  So what did we do?  Well, for starters we ate a ton of them, and then we shared a ton of them, and finally, we froze the rest.  Can’t let those babies go to waste!  Just look at how beautiful they are! 

This past weekend I decided it was time to thaw some of them and make something delicious, and I decided to go ahead and use the pie recipe that the patch themselves provided to us!  They are the experts so they must know what they’re talking about, right?!

Why yes, yes they do.  This was delicious.

Buy It

3 Tbsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. strawberry gelatin powder mix
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 graham cracker pie crust
1 quart fresh strawberries
Whipped cream

Make It

1.    Fill the pie crust with fresh strawberries.

2.    In a saucepan, mix cornstarch, powdered gelatin mix, and sugar.

3.    Add water and stir.

4.    Heat over low heat until thick.

5.    Pour the mixture into the pie crust over the fresh strawberries.

6.    Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.

7.    Serve with whipped cream.

This is cold and refreshing and perfect for warm spring and summer nights.  I will say this, though.  Strawberries do take on a different consistency after they are frozen and thawed, so I do believe that this would be better with fresh strawberries as the recipe states.  It was good with the thawed berries, but they were a bit spongy which made the texture a little odd.  I will definitely be making this again, but next time with fresh ones!

And now it's time for the Tuesday Talk Link Up!
