Glazed Strawberry Pie
Retro jello is the secret to this vintage strawberry pie. The recipe is easy for a weeknight and yet impressive enough for company fare. It’s also adaptable to raspberries with raspberry-flavoured gelatin.
1 baked 9- or 10-inch pie crust (can use graham crumbs or pastry shell)
1 quart fresh strawberries, cut in half and layered in baked shell
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 3-oz package strawberry jello
Combine sugar, cornstarch and water in a 4-cup measure. Microwave this mixture for 5 or 6 minutes, 2 minutes at a time, stirring each time till thickened and clear. Then add 1 package of strawberry jello and stir till dissolved. Pour carefully on strawberries, filling all the little spaces. Put in fridge to chill and set. Serve with whipped cream.
