Super Easy Strawberry Pie

Shortbread Crust

Powdered Sugar 1/2 Cup
Flour 1 1/2 Cups
Unsalted Butter 12 Tablespoons

Strawberry Filling

Fresh Strawberries 3 Lbs
Strawberry Jello 6 oz Package
Lemon 1 zested
Water 2 Cups
Sugar 2 Cups
Cornstarch 6 Tablespoons
Whipped Cream 1 Cup

Super easy strawberry pie, if you want any more shortcuts you could buy a pre-made crust and use whipped cream from a can, but it’s just so easy the original way.

The Crust dough will seem very soft, I press mine down after it comes out of the oven if it gets too puffy.

To make the Whipped cream add 1/2 Cup of Heavy Cream to a mixer with 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar and a teaspoon of Vanilla.

  1. Make the Shortbread Crust by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all the Crust ingredients to a food processor and mix until it forms a ball.
  3. Press into a deep-dish pie tin and bake for about 15 minutes until it just starts to get a golden color around the edge.
  4. Take out and let cool.
  5. Add the Cornstarch, Sugar & Water to a saucepan and bring to a boil, it should take about 5 minutes to dissolve the sugar, it should be thick and almost clear looking when it’s done.
  6. Take it off the heat, zest the Lemon and add that and the Strawberry Jello and stir to combine.
  7. Let it cool in a large bowl, stirring occasionally, it will start to thicken, while its cooling wash and cut the tops off the Strawberries.
  8. When the Jello mixture is cool and thickened stir the Strawberries through it and spoon into the crust.
  9. Keep in the fridge until set then pipe with Whipped Cream and serve.
