|Strawberry Pie.....so good it's criminal!|
I love fresh strawberries and I had a ton I got from the farmer's market on a good deal. So I made a strawberry pie. This recipe is so easy and it was deeeeeeelish. You make the glaze with jello! So easy peasy.
I'm gonna do another one in peach for Johnny's birthday in a few weeks. We are having everyone over for dinner. I think we'll do some ribs on the barbi. Mmmmmhmmmm. Yeah!
|Peaches from my tree...they are sooooo sweet! Yum!|
PIE CRUST INGREDIENTS.....
I used 1 cube butter,
cut in 1 1/3 cup of flour.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons ice water
(I add ice cubes to the water before taking out the Tablespoons.
|The glaze is easy..just jello mixed with sugar water and cornstarch...|
|I rolled it out onto the gallon size baggie...you could use waxed paper too.|
|cuttin' around the upside down tin...1/2 inch bigger for the cute edging...|
|It's so easy to flip the pie crust into the pan and peel off the baggie...then toss it!|
Making the beautiful edging is my fav part. Just pinch between your left thumb and your right thumb and forefinger to make the pointy peaks around your pie crust edge. Or opposite if you are a lefty.
|Don't forget to poke forkholes in the butter pie crust...then bake at 475 for 8-10 minutes.|
Mix 3/4 cup sugar withStrawberry Glaze Ingredients and Directions
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons cornstarch Mix first 3 ingredients....
Put it in a saucepan on the stove till it is smooth and when it is bubbling....boil for about 2 minutes. Then take it off the heat.
Add 1 small 3 oz. strawberry jello into the thickening syrup.
Whisk it for a minute till it is dissolved and then put it in the fridge for 15 minutes to cool.
|Boil the syrup for about 2 minutes....It's a little bit thick...|
|Take it off the stove and toss in the small box of jello....|
|Here's my glaze before I refrigerated it for 15 minutes....|
It was delicious because the top of the crust was still crunchy cookie tasting. I hate pie crust that is all soggy Ug! So we ate that baby up so fast!!! It was gone by morning. Yum is all I can say. But I wish I had made 2 of em.
|Who says you can't have a piece of Fresh Strawberry Pie for breakfast...NOT ME!|
|I'll be dreaming of this Strawberry Pie for awhile......mmmmm good!|
