Summer Fresh Strawberry Pie

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 2 mins

Melt in your mouth fresh strawberry pie - extremely picky hubby's favorite. I have cooked this quite successfully using half sugar and half Splenda, to cut down on the calories.


  1. Wash, drain and slice strawberries and sprinkle them with the 1/8 cup sugar; set aside.
  2. Mix cornstarch,3/4 cup sugar and water in saucepan; bring to boil and stir several minutes, while boiling, until thickened and clear.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in gelatin until dissolved.
  4. Place berries in cooked, cooled shell (or use shortbread or graham cracker crust) and pour gelatin mixture carefully on top.
  5. Refrigerate until chilled; when completely cooled, spread thick layer of Cool Whip on top.

A very tasty and easy-to-make pie. The photo I posted was before I added the Cool Whip, to show the scrumptuous layer of fresh strawberries and a great strawberry glaze that holds it all together. It was a fabulous pie. I made it for PAC Fall '08, and I'm so glad I stumbled upon this recipe.
