Recipe of the Week, February 10: Strawberry Pie

This pie is so easy to put together and great for Valentine's Day. I serve it with a dollop of whipped cream.

Strawberry Pie

¾ cup sugar

4 Tablespoons flour

1/4 cup of strawberry jello (½ of a 3oz. box)

¾ cup water

16 oz pkg. fresh strawberries

Graham Cracker pie shell

Mix sugar, flour, and jello in a small saucepan. Add water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Continue cooking, stirring constantly until it starts to get thick, about another minute. Set aside to cool slightly. Slice strawberries in half lengthwise. Lay half of strawberries in graham cracker pie shell. (I bake my own using directions on graham cracker crumbs package, plus I add a little cinnamon and nutmeg, which makes it taste yummy, or you can use a pastry crust if you prefer). Pour filling over strawberries and then add another layer of strawberries. Cover and refrigerate 6 hours. Top with whipped topping.

Notes: I usually make this with a regular homemade  piecrust.  Refrigerated pastry piecrust is also very good. Bake the piecrust and let cool, then continue with the recipe.

I make mine a little different, i dont use Jello, I cook about 1/2 of the strawberries down with some sugar and water, and then add in a water/cornstarch slurry to thicken and pour that over the other 1/2 of the strawberries in the shell. It is one of my fav desserts and really easy to make!
