    STRAWBERRY DESERTS

    While looking at my subscribed recipe sites today, I came across two wonderful Strawberry Cake recipes.  With strawberries in season i'm sure all of us would enjoy these recipes. I found them on Southern Plate. I'm sure Christie would appreciate you coming to her site for all of her wonderful recipes.  I'm going to enjoy these. How about you.?  

                                                        

    Fresh Strawberry Pie

    • 1 C sugar
    • 1 C Water
    • 3 T strawberry gelatin mix
    • 1 Pint Fresh Strawberries
    • 3 Heaping Tablespoons Cornstarch
    • 1 pie crust, cooked and cooled (The recipe for my crust may be found here I made a recipe and a half for a bit thicker crust)
    Combine sugar, cornstarch, and dry gelatin mix by stirring well. Add water and cook until thick and clear over medium high heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Set aside and let cool. Wash and hull strawberries, cut in half and arrange over pie crust. When filling is cool, pour over strawberries and chill pie until ready to serve. Serve with whipped cream. Think of me when you eat a piece :)

    • 2 C milk (can use skim)
    • 1 (8 oz) carton whipped topping
    • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
    Trim brown from cake. Tear cake into small pieces. Prepare pudding as directed. Fold in cool whip. Place 1/3 cake pieces in a bowl. Top with 1/3 pudding mixture and 1/2 strawberries. Repeat and top with remaining pudding mixture. Garnish with strawberry. Refrigerate.
