For myself, my family and the good of the world…
So I mixed it by hand.
This would have been the perfect time for my ambidextrous talents to kick in. But they didn’t. Never have and never will. It was all on the right arm.
Just when the massive muscles of my right arm were beginning to fatigue, the cream magically thickened into a puffy cloud of holiness.
Here’s the recipe.
2 1/2 qts strawberries, cut up into bite-sized pieces
3/4 – 1 cup sugar (depending on sweetness of strawberries)
1 cup plus 1 Tbl water
2 Tbl cornstarch
3 oz strawberry jello
1 baked pie shell
In a saucepan, combine water, sugar and cornstarch. Bring to a boil. Boil, stirring constantly for one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in jello. Set aside until room temperature. Meanwhile, cut strawberries into bite-sized pieces and arrange in baked pie shell. Pour room temperature jello mix over top and chill until firm. Top with sweetened whipped cream.
Whipped Topping: 1 Cup whipping cream plus 2 Tbl. sugar. Whip until thick and dreamy.
