Grandma's Strawberry Pie

There are many food items that I miss since going gluten free and dairy free. A lot of them have to be even more altered for Piglet and her diet needs. Pie is one that I have been missing! I was so excited when my mother in law came up with this one!

Make the pie crust first.

Pie Crust Ingredients:
1 1/3 to 2 Cups Crushed Cinnamon Sugar Chex Cereal
2 Egg Whites

Mix crushed cereal with egg white. Once mixed well push into a pie pan and form around the edges. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees.


Pie Ingredients:

3 1/2 Cups Fresh Strawberries
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
6 Tablespoon Water (if using lemon juice use 5 TBPS)

For The Filling:

Set aside 2 cups strawberry halves. Crush remaining 1 1/2 cups strawberries with fork, or use a blender

Combine sugars and cornstarch in small saucepan. Add cold water gradually. Stir until smooth. Add crushed strawberries, cook and stir on medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool.

Arrange strawberry halves in prepared pie crust. Pour cooled strawberry mixture over strawberry halves. Chill. Enjoy!!
