Strawberry Pie Recipe

The first time I went to Jon's parent's home his mother made a strawberry pie. I am not really a pie person, but this pie was absolutely delicious and has been a summer favorite of mine ever since. She shared the recipe with me and we have enjoyed making it every year during strawberry season. It's really easy and such a fun dessert this time of year. And the red strawberries against the blue and white HomeGoods runner has "summery" feel to it.

The girls and I made one last week and we thought we would share the recipe with you all:


1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp. shortening
2-3 Tbsp. cold water

Mix together and press into pie dish
(We've also used that pre-made Pillsbury dough before too when we've been in a hurry and it works great as well)
Cook at 425 degrees for first 5 minutes then down to 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes

Now place between 2-4 cups of sliced strawberries in the crust

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
4 Tbsp. strawberry jello powder

Mix dry ingredients
Add water
Cook over medium to high heat until mixture is clear and starts to boil
Let cool a few minutes then pour over strawberries
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours

We are so grateful for all of those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom!
