Strawberry Recipes

These are from a beach friend and I remember how really good they were. She made and shared all three with us. I haven't made them myself for about 10 years but soon will.

Since it is strawberry season I'd like to share with you.
Shoney’s Strawberry Pie                  from Jean Cox

1 3/4 cup water
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 oz. strawberry Jell-O
Strawberries (frozen ones not recommended)

Cook first three ingredients until thick.
Add 1 package (3 oz.) Jell-O and stir.
Place uncooked strawberries in a baked pie shell
    (or graham cracker crust).
Pour cooked mixture over berries.
Chill in refrigerator. Top with whipped cream. 
Makes one 9 inch pie or two small ones.

Cool in the pan on a wire rack.

Beat the cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer on high speed until well blended.

Gently stir in the whipped topping.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crust.

Top with strawberries.

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until
ready to serve.

Will keep 2—3 days in the refrigerator.
