‘Tis the season for delish strawberries. I have always wanted to make a strawberry pie, but thought it was too hard. Well, let me put us all at ease, it is EASY! Not to mention FAST! I made a homemade graham crust, but I think next time I want to try a shortbread crust made with Lorna Doone cookies…my all time favorite cookie!! So if you feel like buying me a gift and find yourself perplexed or unsure, a gift card to a kitchen store or a lifetime suply of Lorna Doone’s!!
Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter or margarine, and cinnamon until well blended . Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch pie plate.
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until slightly cooled.
Meanwhile, arrange strawberries in the crust. Pour gelatin mixture over berries. Refrigerate until set. Garnish with mint if desired. And do not forget the whipped topping, the more the better!!
Don’t those strawberries look like lips?!?!?! 🙂
