Fresh Strawberry Pie
As a kid, we had a restaurant in town named Shoney’s so may know it as Big Boys. They had the best strawberry pie! They also had a Hot Fudge Cake to-die-for. I plan on trying to make that one day.
This pie is just like the Shoney’s pie I adored as a child!
How to Make a Fresh Strawberry Pie with Jello
I did attempt a homemade crust but I failed yet again. I WILL conquer homemade crust!! I just have to keep trying. You could certainly use a premade graham cracker crust pie shell to make this a true no-bake pie.
Also, the next time I make this pie I am going to cut the strawberries smaller for easier eating.
Prepare the pie crust as directed. Set aside.
Clean & trim strawberries. You might want to at least cut the strawberries in half. I think it will make slicing and eating the pie much easier.
Arrange the strawberries in the pie crust.
In a saucepan over medium heat combine water, sugar, and cornstarch. Boil until clear and completely dissolved.
Remove from heat and add the strawberry jello powder. The jello helps enhance the strawberry flavor!
Pour the mixture evenly over all the strawberries.
Refrigerate the pie until set.
Serve the fresh strawberry pie with fresh cold whipped cream or cool whip!
This is sure to be one of your favorite desserts.
