blog #249 >> The Joys of Jello: Part 1 - Pies

In my attempt to bring back the love of Jello, I'll be posting a series of my favorite Jello recipes. Here are two stupendously amazing Jello pie recipes:

Carrie's Jello Pie
3/4 cup sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1 1/2 cup water
1 3oz box of Jello
3 cups berries
1 pre-baked pie shell

Mix cornstarch and sugar in saucepan, gradually stir in water 'til smooth. Stir constantly and cook over med. heat. Bring to a full boil and boil 1 min. Remove from heat, add Jello. Stir until dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Add fruit and pour into pie crust.

My Favorite Chiffon Pie

2 cups berries
1 pre-baked pie shell
