Kristen is hosting a themed edition of Works-For-Me Wednesday today, and she's asking if we'd like to share a summer recipe. Mine is for strawberry pie, and I will happily share the recipe, but I WILL NOT SHARE THE PIE. If you don't believe me, ask the eight-year-old boy I tackled this afternoon when he approached my fridge.
I made this for a church picnic over the weekend; it makes two, which means I could take one to share and I could keep one at home for
my family me.
So here it is, the pie which all other pies want to be when they grow up:
2 containers fresh strawberries, sliced and washed
2 pie shells (homemade, if you're fancy, store-bought if you're me)
17 oz Sprite or 7-Up
1 pkg strawberry Jell-o
1 1/2 cup sugar
5 tbsp cornstarch
Bake pie crust, set aside to cool.
In a sauce pan, bring Sprite, sugar and cornstarch to a bowl. Cook over low heat until it thickens (5-10 minutes).
Remove pan from heat. Stir in Jell-o until dissolved. Mix in sliced strawberries. Chill mixture in fridge for 20 minutes.
Remove from fridge and pour into two pie shells. Cover with saran wrap and chill for at least three hours before serving.
