World's Greatest Strawberry Pie

My mom discovered this pie glaze years ago, and I've never tasted a better strawberry pie.  It's super easy too.  All you need is Strawberries, (of course) uncooked pie crust and strawberry flavor Danish Dessert. It looks like this.
The only place that I know of in all of AZ that carries it is Bashas. And only a few of them do.  You can find it just about anywhere in Utah, but AZ hasn't quite caught on yet. So, if you see us in the airport coming home from Utah, with a suitcase full of this stuff... now you know why. This would make a great dessert to add to your Easter dinner.

World's Greatest Strawberry Pie

Pie crust
1 pint of strawberries, sliced and de-stemmed
1 box of Junket Danish Dessert
Cool Whip

Crust:  Roll out pie crust and lay evenly in a pie 9 inch pie pan. (or you can buy them pre-cooked already in a pie pan... in the freezer section) Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes, until crust begins to brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Filling: Make the filling by following the instructions on the back of the box, for the pie glaze. Allow to cool completely (you don't want the strawberries to get cooked.) Stir in sliced strawberries and pour immediately into the cooled pie crust.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to let it set and top with cool whip.

Tip: To make a pretty edge to the pie crust. (not like the picture above... I had a stubborn pan when I made this one. lol) Before cooking the pie crust...Push dough towards the edge slightly with index finger of left hand a push dough slightly with the thumb and index of the right hand from the edge towards the center of the pie.  Your thumb and index of the right hand should be on either side of the left hands index finger.  Wow, that was harder to explain than I thought. Good luck
