Strawberry pie with jello
Nothing says “summer” quite like fresh strawberries. We have made it an annual early summer tradition to go out and pick strawberries, and our favorite thing to make when we return home is…. pie!
Sharing my grandma’s recipe for fresh summer strawberry pie with gelatin and a classic pastry crust
Last year I shared a mason jar twist on my maternal grandmother’s strawberry pie, so this year I pulled out my paternal grandmother’s recipe. We called her “Nanny,” and I remember eating this pie often as a child.
This recipe makes *plenty* of gelatin filling, so don’t feel like you need to use it all.Print
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/4 cup sornstarch
- pinch of salt
- red food coloring
- 1 3-ounce package strawberry gelatin
- fresh unsweetened strawberries
- 1 baked pie shell
- whipped cream
Combine sugar, water, cornstarch, and salt in a saucepan; cook until clear. Remove from heat. Add red food coloring to desired color. Add gelatin; stir well. Cool. Place strawberries in baked pie shell. Pour gelatin mixture over top. Top with whipped cream before serving.
