Made a road trip to Dayton, Tennessee last week and brought back fresh strawberries that were straight out of the field. As a matter of fact, you could see the illegal…I mean migrant workers working in the field across the highway. Can’t get much fresher!
- Crush 3 dozen Vanilla wafers
- Add ½ cup chopped pecans
- Blend with ½ stick margarine or butter
- Form in a glass pie plate (suitable for the oven) with spoon
- Bake 30 minutes @ 300F
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 4 tablespoons strawberry gelatin
Combine first 3 ingredients and boil until clear and thick, then add gelatin.
Cool the mixture then add 4 cups of fresh strawberries (sample a few while you work).
Finally, pour everything into the crust/shell and chill in the refrigerator. Serve with a heaping spoon of Cool Whip!
