Sensational Almond Strawberry Pie


I LOVE strawberries and am SO glad their 'season' has arrived.

I am elated that I found this wonderful recipe at Cooking with K -

Kay shares a lot of her mama's (granny) recipes!  I love it when these kinds of 'treasures' are passed down to family.  Please take time to check out her blog.



This pie is easy, delicious and a real winner in my book!

The sauce for the strawberries is easy enough and has almond extract added, which makes it oh-so yummy!

And because you used boxed jello and pudding, I was able to use sugar free and made this awesome dessert guilt-free as well!

The Buttery Shortbread Crust is awesome too.  Such a nice change from regular pie crust. And it melts in your mouth.

EASY ALMOND STRAWBERRY PIE 



1 (3 oz.) pkg. strawberry Jello

1 pkg. vanilla flavored cook and serve pudding, (not instant), 4 servings
1 1/4 cup water
1 1/2 pt. strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 teaspoon almond extract

2 cups whipped cream

Combine Jello and pudding mix in a medium saucepan. Stir in water, cook and stir over high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature. Add almond extract and stir in sliced strawberries and pour into the pie shell. Chill until set, about 2-3 hours. Top the pie with whipped cream. Sprinkle sliced almonds over the whip cream if you like.

Now go wipe the drool off your chin and make this delicious dessert for dinner tonight!  :-}
