How to make Strawberry Pie with Jello filling.
While the pie crust is cooling, mix together the filling by heating together in a saucepan:
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
Once it is clear, add in a 4 serving size package of strawberry jello powder.
Let the filling sauce cool slightly and then pour over 1 pint of sliced strawberries that you’ve poured into the cooled pie shell.
Cool completely in the fridge until the jello sets and the pie becomes firm.
Serve with whipped cream.
