  • ¾ c. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • c. water
  • 3 oz strawberry jello
  • 3 c. sliced fresh strawberries
  • Cool Whip or Real Whipped Cream (link for Homemade Real Whipped Cream in Notes below)
  • 10 in. baked pie crust (link for my Easy Homemade Pie Crust recipe in Notes below) 


  • Combine sugar, cornstarch and water; cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring often. (I like to use a whisk for this.)
  • Remove from heat and add jello; stir until dissolved.
  • Allow to cool slightly, then gently mix in strawberries. (If you are in a hurry, you can skip this step- the berries just stay nicer if it’s cooled.)
  • Pour into baked pie crust and refrigerate until filling is set.
  • Before serving, top with Cool Whip or Real Whipped Cream.
