Day 124: Strawberry Pie

I don't believe there is anything more refreshing or characteristic of spring than a strawberry pie. Not to mention that it is a relatively healthy dessert. This recipe that I want to share with you is easy breezy and absolutely delicious! Add a spoonful of whipped cream and you will be in heaven!

Strawberry Pie
Yields: 8 slices (210 calories each)

  • 1 unbaked pie shell (not deep dish)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pkg sugar free strawberry gelatin
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and cut in half
  1. Bake pie crust according to package directions; set aside to cool.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water; whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until slightly cooled.
  4. Meanwhile, arrange strawberries in the crust. Pour gelatin mixture evenly over strawberries. Refrigerate until set.  Serve with whipped cream if desired.
