Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch pie crust 213 grams, store-bought or premade
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries 454 grams, quartered
  • Whipped cream optional, for serving

Notes

  • Use fresh rather than frozen strawberries for this recipe. Frozen fruits are either likely to stay frozen, or, release too much liquid into the jello.
  • Let the pie crust cool fully before adding the strawberries and jello.
  • Allow 2 to 3 hours for the pie to fully set before serving.
  • Nutritional information does not include optional ingredients.
Storage: Store Strawberry Jello Pie in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
