Step 1 - Ingredients

  • 2lbs Strawberries
  • 3/4 C Sugar
  • 1 3oz. Box Strawberry Jello
  • 1 1/2 C Water
  • 2 T Cornstarch
  • Pie Crust for a single pie (You can make your own, but I cheat)
  • Cool Whip

Step 2 - Baking Your Crust

  • Roll out your crust to fit your pie plate.
  • Make sure to prick the sides and bottom so your crust doesn’t bubble up.
  • Bake as directed on the package.

Step 3 - Preparing Your Glaze

While the crust is baking, prepare the glaze by combining the Jello, sugar, water and cornstarch and cook it till its thick enough to coat the back of the spoon like shown in the video below.

Step 4 - Putting It All Together

Quarter your washed and cleaned strawberries and fill up your crust pretty full but allow room for your glaze. When the strawberries are all cut up its time to pour on the glaze. After this step, put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes to allow the glaze to set up just a bit.

Step 5 - Last but Not Least

After being in the fridge for about 30 minutes, your now ready to add the final step and that’s the cool whip. Spread it thick enough to cover all the strawberries. Sometimes, for extra goodness, add a little more then what it calls for.

And last but not least, add the prettiest strawberry from the box right on top!!
