Red, White & Cool {Recipe}

It's no secret. Holidays mean, food, food and more food! For this years July 4th dessert, I decided to whip up something new! This pie is quite different than any normal fruit pie. It's a fresh, chilled, fruit pie, and it is so good! Shoutout to my mom for helping me come up with the adorable name for this one! HI MOM!

Ingredients: (Yields 2 pies)
1 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
4 Tbsp. sugar
1½ cups flour
2 Tbsp. Cinnamon (optional)
2 c. water
2 c. sugar
6 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 (6 oz.) package strawberry jell-o
2 quarts strawberries, cleaned, and sliced

  1. Mix butter, sugar, and flour and press into a greased pie plate. 
  2. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
  3. Let cool
  1. Bring water, sugar, and cornstarch to a boil, constantly stirring, until thick and mostly clear.
  2. Add strawberry Jell-O, mix well and let cool.
  3. Mix in cold strawberries.
  4. Pour into pie shell.
  5. Store in refrigerator until set; serve with whipped cream.
This pie was a hit when dessert time rolled around this past weekend! I think my favorite part is knowing it can be made with any fruit/Jell-o combo. I can't wait to try out the recipe with a different fruit!
Hope you all enjoy!

  11. First of all, your crust is absolutely gorgeous, which is so hard to do so kudos to you! Secondly this sounds absolutly heavenly! I used to bake all the time before I had to cut gluten from my diet, but I wonder if I could find a gluten free crust and still make this. It sounds waaay too good not to try anyways! Strawberries, especially in a pie, just screams summer to me.
