HEAVENLY STRAWBERRY PIE

makes 2 nine-inch pies

Recipe from My Stained Apron (www.mystainedapron.com)

 

2 cups 7 up

1 1/3 cups sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 small package strawberry jello

4-6 cups fresh strawberries, sliced thick

2 baked pie shells (I used my pie crust recipe-Baked at 425 for about 15-18 minutes)

Whipped Cream*

 

Bring the 7 up, sugar, and cornstarch to a boil, stirring often until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.

Add the jello. Cool thoroughly, but don't refrigerate. Stir in the fresh strawberries.

Pour into 2 baked pie shells. Chill until firm then top with whipped cream.

*For quick whipped cream, just whisk by hand or use a hand mixer, on high, until fluffy. (soft or firm peaks, use your preference). For sweetened, just dust in powdered sugar halfway through to desired sweetness.
