Lena’s Strawberry Pie

Strawberries are finally in season and that means it’s time to make my mother-in-law’s amazing strawberry pie. It’s so easy, super refreshing and insanely delicious! As you can see from one of my favorite pictures of my son from about 5 years ago – it’s a family favorite!

Strawberry Pie

Pie Crust:

1 1/3 C flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 C shortening (or try coconut oil as a substitute – it gives an amazing tropical flavor)

Mix flour and salt together. Cut in shortening. Add water and roll. Place in a 9″ pie pan and bake for 10-15 minutes at 425 degrees.

Once out of the oven fill your crust with sliced strawberries.

Filling:

1 C sugar

1 C water

2 tbsp cornstarch

3 tbsp strawberry or raspberry jello

Boil sugar, water and cornstarch until clear. Mix in jello and let cool. Pour over fruit and refrigerate for 4-5 hours.
