Super Easy Summertime Strawberry Jell-O Pie, Easy Summer Recipes for Kids

20160626_105855My two year old and I went strawberry picking over the weekend.  We had so many strawberries and I knew I had to do something with them.  I came across this recipe and I thought it was perfect, and it was.  My little girl loved helping me make this Jell-O pie and loved eating it more.  This is a great dessert to bring to that summer BBQ or any other summer party. It’s also a lot lighter and healthier than other desserts, which is great for summer.  Follow this step-by-step recipe to make your very own Jell-O pie.

Ingredients: 1 packet of strawberry Jell-O, two pints of strawberries (washed and cut into halves), 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon powered sugar, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 2 tablespoon milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pie pan

To make the pie crust

Step 1: combined the flour, powered sugar, oil, milk and salt in a bowl.  Hand mix until all the ingredients are blended together.

Step 2: Press the pie crust mixture into a pie pan.  Bake in the oven at 325 for 15-20 minutes or until the edges of the crust are a light brown.
