Creating the Perfect Pie Shell

To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While it warms up, melt 5 tablespoons of butter in the microwave for about 30 to 45 seconds. Let it cool as you crush a sleeve of graham crackers (about 12 crackers) in a ziplock bag. Add a quarter teaspoon of kosher salt and three tablespoons of sugar to the bag, and mix well. Pour in the melted butter, and thoroughly combine the mixture. Press the crumbs into a pie plate, making sure it spreads evenly. If you’re using a deep-dish pie pan, plan to make more of the crumb mixture.

Making the Irresistible Glaze

Now, let’s prepare the tantalizing glaze. In a mixing bowl, combine half a cup of sugar, three tablespoons of cornstarch, and one small package of strawberry jell-o (or six tablespoons of strawberry jell-o from a larger package). Whisk the ingredients together until well blended. Next, add one and a quarter cups of water and stir until the cornstarch dissolves completely. Place the mixture on the stovetop, bring it to a boil, and cook for approximately three minutes or until it thickens and becomes clear. Whisk the mixture often to prevent lumps. Once done, remove it from the heat and let it cool.

Preparing the Tempting Berries

Now, let’s slice and prepare the strawberries. Take about two cups of thoroughly washed strawberries and remove their tops. For easier slicing, I recommend cutting the berries into quarters or smaller pieces. This will ensure a perfect-looking pie. Arrange the sliced strawberries evenly in the pie shell, making sure the outer part of the berries faces up for an aesthetically pleasing presentation.

The Magical Finishing Touch

It’s time to add the glaze! Pour the slightly thickened glaze over the strawberries, making sure to cover them entirely and fill up any spaces between the berries. Spread the glaze evenly, ensuring it reaches every nook and cranny. Pop the pie into the refrigerator and let it chill for about 30 minutes until the glaze sets. Once set, cover the pie with plastic wrap and let it chill for at least 5 hours.

Serving and Indulging

When you’re ready to serve, take the pie out of the fridge and add a dollop of whipped cream for that extra touch of decadence. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy every heavenly bite!
