The trip to the strawberry fields last week inspired me to make a Strawberry Pie. A great idea for a 4th of July party!
(This recipe was adapted from Strawberry Pie by Cooking Light)
50 low-cal vanilla wafers
1/4 cup margarine, melted
2 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp grated orange rind
2 cups ripe strawberries
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespon fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 cups of sliced strawberries
Preheat oven to 350
Put the cookies in the blender and ground them up. Add butter , sugar and orange rind until wafers are moist. Press them into the pie pan that I sprayed first. Bake for 15 minutes. cool.
Mash 2 cups of strawberries wuth a potato masher. Combine with water is a saucepan, bring to a boil and cook about 5 minutes, stirring and stirring.
Press the strawberry mixture through a sieve and discard pulp. Reserve 1 cup of strawberry liquid and combine with 2/3 cup sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. Whisk-it and bring to a boil, cook one minute. Reduce heat and cook for a few more minutes squeeze in the lemon juice.
Place sliced strawberries in the crust and pour a little of the mixture over the top. Repeat layer. Chill for a few hours in the fridge.

Frost it with Cool Whip and arrange blueberries on top.
Yummy and only 250 calories per slice.
