1 10-inch pie crust, pre-baked
1 box (3 oz) strawberry Jell-O
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
3 tablespoons cornstarch

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Line the bottom of a pre-baked pie crust with sliced strawberries.

2:  Combine cornstarch, sugar and water in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add the Jell-O and stir until dissolved.

3:  Pour gelatin mixture over strawberries and refrigerate until set.

Darlene’s Tips: You can use any flavor gelatin that you want and experiment with different fruit or berries. If you don’t have a crust, just pour into any casserole dish or even a cake pan. Just scoop out to eat.
