I cut this recipe out of the Columbus Dispatch probably over 40 years ago! It is one of my all-time favorite recipes & I can't tell you how many pies I've made over the years. I can tell you that my dear darling & I can finish off a whole pie to ourselves in two days!! We justify this by saying that: A. It doesn't keep well & B. It gets runny after it's cut!!!! Please try our favorite pie.
1 pre-baked pie shell (try the No Roll Pie Crust)
1 quart strawberries, cleaned & hulled & set aside
3/4 cup sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1 cup water
2 T. light corn syrup
pinch of salt
3 T. strawberry gelatin
Combine sugar & cornstarch in a heavy saucepan & stir. Add water, corn syrup & salt. Cook until thickened & opaque in color. Remove from heat & add gelatin. The original recipe said to add red food coloring, but I never do. Stir to dissolve the gelatin. Cool.
Pour over the berries. I usually cut the berries in half. Mix gently & pour into the baked pie shell. Chill.
