This recipe came from my mother, and it's just as refreshing when made with peaches or blueberries.—Michelle Isenhoff, Wayland, Michigan

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • Fresh mint, optional

Directions

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Line crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edge is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
    In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate 15-20 minutes or until slightly cooled.
  3. Meanwhile, arrange strawberries in crust. Pour gelatin mixture over berries. Refrigerate until set. If desired, garnish with mint.
