DIRECTIONS

  • In medium size sauce pan add the following ingredients:  Sugar replacement, water, both boxes of sugar free jello.  Separately, in a measuring cup place the cornstarch and just enough cold water to dissolve.  Add to saucepan.  Whisk all ingredients frequently.  Once boiling, allow to boil for three minutes.  Remove from heat source.  Place on top of ice bath (this facilitates the cooling process).  When cool, add extracts (if you are using them), and whisk to combine.       This mixture MUST be completely cooled prior to adding to the fresh cut strawberries.   As pictured, I cut the strawberries in very large pieces.  Feel free to slice, or cut up as you like.  Add cooled mixture to strawberries.  Gently toss to coat well.  Pour mixture into pre-baked pie crust and place in fridge.  Using the ice bath technique to chill the gel mixture expedites this recipe!   It will set up in about an hour.   Top with whipped topping if desired.
  • Ice Bath-  Use a bowl much larger than the saucepan containing the gel mixture.  Fill half way with ice.  When gel mixture is removed from the heat source, place hot pan on top of the ice and continue to whisk.
