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.

How to Make Strawberry Spring Pie

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.
