Lisa Frost
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) Ingredients: Crust: 50 low-cal vanilla wafers 1/4 cup margarine, melted 2 tablespoon sugar 1 tsp grated orange rind Cooking spray Filling: 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 coolwhip 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. I see hearts in the pie!!! Frost it with Cool Whip and arrange blueberries on top.     Yummy and only 250 calories per slice. Enjoy! xox lisA
