What is a good recipe for Hawaiian strawberry pie like Village Inn sells? Thanks.
Hawaiian Strawberry Pie
Prep Time: 30 mins Total Time: 30 mins Servings: 8 Ingredients
6 ounces graham cracker pie crust 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries or 2 cups frozen unsweetened strawberries, if fresh are not available 1 (3 ounce) packages strawberry gelatin 1 (3 1/2 ounce) packages vanilla pudding mix, NOT INSTANT 1 (8 ounce) cans crushed pineapple with juice, drained and reserve juice water 1 teaspoon coconut extract 1 cup Cool Whip 2 tablespoons flaked coconut Directions
Place strawberries in the pie crust, either fresh or frozen, that have been drained. In a medium saucepan combine the dry gelatin pudding and mix. Add enough water to the pineapple juice to make 1 1/2 cups liquid. Add to dry pudding mixture. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Pour hot mixture over the strawberries.
Refrigerate 2 hours.
In a small bowl combine the drained pineapple, coconut extract and Cool Whip. Mix gently to combine. Both layers can be cooled at the same time. Spread the drained pineapple, coconut extract and Cool Whip mixture over the set strawberry filling. Sprinkle flaked coconut over the top.
Refrigerate at least 5 minutes but no more than 24 hours. Cut into 8 pieces.
Please clarify something for me. Do you combine the gelatin mix and pudding mix and then add the pineapple juice/water and cook? I had a hard time figuring out what to do with the strawberry gelatin. Thanks.
