The recipe for today is really good. I think I must say that almost every day. But this one really is good. This is the time of year when berries are plentiful and oh so pretty. Strawberries just happen to be the berry I used in this pie. You could use any berries – even a mixture of berries in this pie. Maybe we should try raspberries next. That’s what my husband thinks we should do. I agree.
Note the “V Good” connotation here – and she ain’t kiddin’!!!!
Here is the recipe as I made it:
Strawberry Pie (Berry Glaze – pie or pudding)
Mix together in a saucepan:
1 12 ounce can 7-UP soda
1 cup white sugar
4 Tablespoons cornstarch (5 T. if you are adding extra berries)
Cook until thick.
Add 3 ounce box of Strawberry Jell-O (or raspberry).
Add berries (at least a quart).
It says it makes 2 pies but I only got 1 – I might have used a bigger pie plate.
I used the same graham cracker crust recipe I used for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie.
You can find it here.
The mixture does get really thick once it boils.
Adding the Strawberry Jell-O makes it a pretty color.
Strawberry Pie just screams summer!!!
This is an easy pie to make.
Give it a try.
Say “hello” to summer!
