Lesson #139: Icebox Strawberry Pie

This fruit-filled pie takes advantage of all the WONDERFUL strawberries which are now in season. My grocery store had containers of strawberries on sale, so I bought a few to try out this recipe.

The first step is to bake a single pie crust and let it cool. Then, whole strawberries are cooked down until the become "jam-like" and you add a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, water, and unflavored gelatin. After cooking the mixture on the stove top for a few minutes, you transfer it to another bowl and let it cool for about 30 minutes. Once the mixture cools, mix in sliced strawberries and pour into the baked pie shell. The whole thing is then refrigerated until set. It's a easy as that!

LESSON LEARNED: Keep this pie stored in the refrigerator!
