  • One frozen 9" deep dish pie crust
  • 6 ounces (One 6-ounce box) strawberry gelatin
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • cups water
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 2 lbs fresh strawberries hulled and halved if large
  • For garnish: sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place the frozen pie crust onto a cookie sheet, which will make it easier to remove from the oven. Prick holes all over the pie crust bottom and sides with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the gelatin, sugar, and cornstarch until combined. Add in the water and lemon zest, whisking to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook for one minute exactly, stirring constantly. Take off the heat and bring the mixture to room temperature.
  • Place all the berries into the pie crust shell. Pour the glaze evenly over the berries. Refrigerate until firm, about 2-3 hours. Serve with freshly whipped cream or whipped topping.
