  • 1 frozen pie crust (deep dish if you can find it)
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp dry strawberry gelatin (like Jello - about 1/2 a 3 oz box)
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries (sliced in half or quarters, depending on size of berries)
  • whipped cream, for garnish (optional)


  • Prick bottom and sides of frozen pie crust with fork, and bake according to package directions.  If you're worried about the crust puffing up, before baking, place a piece of parchment paper inside the crust and add about a cup of dried beans or rice.  Let cool.
  • To a small sauce pan, add water, sugar, and cornstarch and whisk to combine.  Heat over MED heat until boiling, reduce heat a bit and simmer several minutes, until thickened.  
  • Whisk in dry strawberry gelatin and set aside to cool, stirring occasionally.
  • Wash and slice strawberries, then add to cooled pie crust.  Pour strawberry gelatin mixture over strawberries.  Refrigerate at least 4 hours, until set.
  • Serve cold, with whipped cream if desired.


Prep and cook time does not include pie baking time, as different manufacturers call for different baking times.
