Recipe Notes

HOW MANY PIES DOES THIS MAKE?

The jello filling makes about two 8 inch pies. If you are only making one 9 inch pie, there will be excess filling. Because there is excess filling this is why you add it very last. Don't mix it in with your strawberries and dump into pie, it will overflow.

REFRIGERATE STRAWBERRY PIE

Place pie to chill for about 3+ hours. When you are not eating the pie, place back into refrigerator. Because of the cream and jello it needs to stay chilled.
