betty's strawberry pie
a recipe by
A sweet and crunchy pie packed with plump strawberries. I make this when strawberries are in season and at their sweetest, perfect to end a warm day. The step about the jelly/jello being syrupy is paramount to this working and the base staying crunchy. This can be made the day prior. Serve with lashings of fresh cream and/or vanilla ice cream. Chilling time is cooking time.

How To Make betty's strawberry pie
1In a food processor, blitz the base together and press into a standard pie plate. Remembering to go up the sides. Refrigerate until needed.
2Prepare the jelly/jello using the water needed for only 1 package (you want the jelly to set firmly). Place into a fridge until syrupy and no longer watery - this is super important.
3Place the prepared strawberries into the chilled base and carefully pour over the syrupy jelly/jello solution.
4Refrigerate until well set, about 3 - 4 hours. I normally make this the morning of serving.
