PieDay Friday-Strawberry Pie

I had to get out this Strawberry Pie recipe before the end of Summer. Sweet and delicate, this pie is a beautiful hot weather dessert.

My husband has never been a fan of overly-sweet dishes so before even trying the pie he sprinkled sea salt over the top! I stared at him in disbelief for a good long minute before throwing my hands up and walking away. After trying his salty strawberry pie, he brought it over to me and told me I had to try it. I have to admit, the sea salt actually worked with the glaze.  I don't think I would ever serve it like that, but it was definitely something I would be willing to try again.  For now, I'm sticking with whipped cream.

Strawberry Pie

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup strawberry gelatin
1 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups halved and hulled strawberries
1 prepared and cooked pie crust

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and gelatin. Toss to combine. Whisk in water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Once the glaze has boiled for 1 full minute, remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.  Fold in strawberry halves until well coated and add entire mixture to pre-baked pie crust. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.
