Strawberry Pie! Oh My!

Recipe: Strawberry Pie! Oh My!

Summary: Jamie Savage named this pie. I miss her. Jeff and I went to their house for dinner and I brought this for dessert. First, you have to know that Jamie is an easy-to-please girl, but she and Trent went crazy over this pie. Jeff and I did, too. Jamie and I really enjoyed food together, which makes us dangerous for each other. She was also my workout buddy, so it all balanced out. Did I mention that I miss her? Given my limitations with pie crust, I’m sure I used a Pillsbury crust. So sue me.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

  • ½ - 3.4 ounce package strawberry Jell-O (approximately)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¾ cup boiling water
  • 1½ - 2 cups mashed strawberries

Instructions
