Chunky Boy in Checkered Pants Strawberry Pie

When I lived in the Midwest, one of the rites of Spring was Big Boy Strawberry Pie (right after my Slim Jim Combo). So I did my research and saw that every recipe was the same. Now, I can’t have that. So I made a couple of changes to intensify the strawberry flavor. You still have the fresh strawberries and the whipped cream. I hope you like it.

1 9” pie shell
4 cups strawberries, cut in quarters
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon strawberry extract
3 ounces strawberry Jello
8 ounces whipping cream

Bake pie crust until golden brown.

Mix water, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, and strawberry extract and bring to a boil for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and add jello; stir until dissolved.

Let cool for 1 hour.

Add berries to pie shell.

Cover in jello mixture.

Refrigerate for 2 hours.

In a bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form.

Ask wife to pipe whipped cream on pie.

Watch as she does and compliment the result.
