I got this recipe from my mom (not sure where she originally got it from). Its yummy and pretty easy. This recipe makes 2 pies. I have never used the strawberry flavoring (because I always forget to buy it) and its always tasted just fine.
1 pkg frozen pie crusts (usually 2 in pkg)
2 C water
2 C sugar
6 T cornstarch
1 pkg strawberry jello
2 tsp strawberry flavoring
1 1/2 Carton strawberries, washed & cut up
cool whip, if desired
1. Bake pie crusts according to pkg instructions. Cool.
2. Combine water, sugar & cornstarch in pot. Bring to a boil. Add the jello, stir, remove from heat & cool. Add strawberry flavoring.
3. Divide strawberries into both pie crusts and pour the jello mixture into crusts. I prefer to mix it together a little w/ the strawberries inside the crust. Refrigerate until set. Serve w/ cool whip.
