HOW TO MAKE FRESH STRAWBERRY PIE WITH JELLO

  1. If you wish to bake your own pie crust, do that first. Otherwise, cook your pre-made crust for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees F or according to package directions. 
  2. To medium saucepan, add the sweetener, cornstarch, water and Jello mix. Cook over medium heat and stir frequently with a whisk until thickened. 
  3. Remove from heat. 
  4. Allow the mixture to cool slightly. Then, stir in the strawberries. Allowing it to cool for 5 minutes or so helps keep the strawberries pretty! 🙌🏼
  5. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and spread out evenly. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until the pie has set before slicing. 
  6. Before serving, top with Cool Whip! You can spread the Cool Whip across the whole top or serve each slice individually with a dollop!
