I have a delicious strawberry pie recipe. for the crust cut 1 stick softened butter into 1 1/4 cups flour. Press into pie pan or baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes,then let cool. For the filling; place 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tbs clear Karo syrup, 3 1/2 Tbs cornstarch and 1 cup water in sauce pan. Cook until thick and clear, stiring often. Add 2 Tbs strawberry jello (or 2 tsps if using sugar free). mix well and let cool. Add 1 quart sliced strawberries then pour into cooled crust. Chill and top with cool whip. Enjoy.
2 cups water
1 1/4cup sugar
1 small box strawberry Jello
add cornstarch and sugar to the 2 cups of water. Boil unil thick and clear; add Jello. Cool slightly and then add berries. Place into a prepared graham cracker crust or baked pie crust.
I don't know if this is what you are looking for -- the only cornstarch is in the Jell-O -- but this is quick and no bake, great for a hot day!
2 graham cracker crusts
1 small box strawberry Jell-O
Put strawberries in crust. Make Jell-O according to package directions. Pour Jell-O into crusts. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla or strawberry ice cream. Each pie makes 6 to 8 servings.
I learned this in home ec 40 years ago and I'm still using it. It is so simple and good -- it never fails to impress! You can make this with almost any fruit(fresh, frozen, or canned).
