Strawberry Jell-O Pie is a simple and delightful dessert that's perfect for any occasion. Here's a basic recipe to get you started:
For the Crust: 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
For the Filling: 1 (3 oz) package of strawberry-flavored Jell-O 1 cup boiling water 1/2 cup cold water 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
For the Whipped Cream Topping: 1 cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a mixing bowl, blend graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Firmly press this mixture into a 9-inch pie dish, ensuring it covers the bottom and sides. Allow the crust to chill in the fridge as you get the filling ready.
Dissolve strawberry Jell-O in 1 cup of boiling water in a heatproof bowl. Add 1/2 cup cold water and allow it to cool slightly, without setting. Gently fold in sliced strawberries.
Chill: Place the pie in the refrigerator and let it set for at least 4 hours or until the Jell-O is completely firm.
Just before serving, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a cold mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Spread the whipped cream over the set Jell-O pie.
Slice the strawberry Jell-O pie and serve it chilled. Enjoy!
