Strawberry Spring Pie

We love strawberrkies, even our dogs love strawberries. Couple of years ago I made a strawberry pie and asked how it was and everyone said good, it's good. My daughter said I just wish it was...strawberrier. Good, just good, strawberrier, how dare they. But I picked up one of those berries and said like every good Southern woman, as God is my witness, they will never say just good again. So it took about a year to finalize this pie, so it was strawberry enough and not too soupy and we think it's good. As a matter of fact, my daughter says she triple dog dares ya to eat this without loving it.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-bake your pie crust and let cool completely.
Note: I have never used frozen pie crusts but I did buy a couple because I was making extra pies for neighbors and if I ever do use frozen they will be Marie Callenders.
2
Pour water into small sauce pan then sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over it and let bloom while doing the other things.
3
Combine sugar and Bacardi frozen Strawberry Daiquiri mixer in small saucepan. Heat over medium heat till sugar dissolves and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add strawberry gelatin. Stir until it dissolves.
4
Now heat the water with gelatin until it is dissolved. Stir this into the daiquiri mixture. Stir in almond extract.
5
Mix berries in gelatin before placing in pie shell. Pour into pie shell let chill 2 or 3 hours.
6
Garnish with whipped topping. ENJOY!!! This will even be good with berries that are not quite as good as others.
