Total Time 5 hours

Summer picnics aren't complete without this EASY NO-BAKE STRAWBERRY PIE recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (~10 full sheet graham crackers)
  • 6 tbls butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbls cornstarch
  • 1/2 package (4-serving size) strawberry-flavored gelatin (~3 tbls)
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 package (6 ounces) ready-to-use shortbread pie crust
  • Whipped cream, if desired

Directions

  1. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 1/3 cup sugar together in a medium bowl until combined. The mixture will be coarse and sandy. Press the mixture into the bottom of 9 inch pie pan and slightly up the sides. Use the bottom of a flat cup to really press the crumbs into the pan. The crust should be really thick.
  2. Chill the crust for at least 2 hours before using.
  3. Mix water, 1/2 cup sugar, and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute then remove from heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens, but isn't set.
  4. Fold strawberries gently into gelatin mixture. Pour into crust and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until set. Serve with whipped cream. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator.
