This is just like my strawberry pie recipe I got from an old boyfriend's mother. Except I use a graham cracker crust instead of a regular pie shell. YaYa
Yum! This recipe was really tasty. I used 1/2 cup of the Splenda & Sugar blend instead of the full cup sugar. I also added a teaspoon vanilla extract to the water like swissms did. I will make again! Thanks!
This is almost exactly the same as my recipe. The only difference is that my recipe calls for 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to be added at the same time as the water. In step 4, the water/sugar/cornstarch mixture should cook until it is thick and very transparent. I sometimes use whole strawberries which makes for a nice presentation. I have been making this pie for over 20 years and it always receives rave reviews (very fresh tasting and it is super simple to make). A favorite at summer parties.
My mother has made this same pie recipe with fresh strawberries from her garden for years! Thanks for posting this recipe.
Totally awesome pie! I used a ready-made shortbread crust, but a baked crust would be good as well. The only thing I did have to adjust was the amount of strawberries called for. The recipe says a pint but I used a heaping quart and even then I had some of the jello mixture leftover. This will become a staple in our home. By all means try it, you won't be sorry! Thanks Doris1!
Fastest, prettiest strawberry you'll ever make! If pressed for time, substitute baked piecrust with a ready-made shortbread crust.
