Homemade Strawberry Pie

We went strawberry picking again and all my son talked about was coming home and making a homemade strawberry pie. Well I have never done this before, couldn't tell him that. We all know that kids think Mom, knows/has done it all.....right, well not this time.

So I got on the computer and googled homemade strawberry pie's. Read some recipes and then made up my own little version, have to say it turned out pretty good....Daddy ate ALOT of it. So had to be good then...haha.

Strawberry jello mix
Pie crust....we used Pillsbury pie dough
Pot to heat the sauce in
Small baggie(to smash the strawberries in)
1/2 cup of sugar
1st cut up the strawberries, place in the baggie and smash them up, then get 1 cup of water, jello mix, and smashed strawberries, mix all 3 together in the pot. Cook on low heat for about 5 minutes and then add 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch in and stir, til you get like a syrup mix, you might have to add alittle more cornstarch to thicken it.

Then pour syrup mix into pie crust, add some whole strawberries with stems cut off. Place in oven on 350 degrees til crust is brown and let it cool and serve.

J had a great time making the strawberry pie. This is a great hands on project for the kids. Lots of fun teaching could be added in.
