It’s one of my favorite seasons, Strawberry season! This time of the year the strawberries are so sweet. If you enjoy eating strawberries as much as I do, you may want to head to the Strawberry Festival in Stillwaterm OK., on Saturday May 11th.
This week I’m sharing a very special strawberry pie recipe. My sister shared this recipe on facebook last week saying our mother had given it to her. I told her evidently she was mother’s favorite daughter since mother hadn’t shared it with me. My sister was quick to tell me mother had said I had given it to mother. I dont remember this recipe! I’m telling you this because I really don’t know where it had originated. What I can tell you us the recipe is easy and very good because I made it over the weekend. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine did.
Strawberry Pie (Makes 2)
2 Baked and cooled pie crusts
Place your strawberries in the cooled pie crust. Use whole strawberries unless they are very large. Then you may want to cut them in half. After arranging your strawberries, you will make the strawberry glaze.
In a saucepan combine the follwing :
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water
1/8 tsp. Salf
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
Place over medium heat and stir until it has thickened
1 Small package strawberry Jello. Stir unil jello has dissolved. Allow the glaze to cool. Then pour over the strawberries. If desired serve topped with Cool Whip. ENJOY
Hint: I find a small wire whip my best friend when making this glaze.
