Strawberry Slab Pie

I think this was the hit of the 4th of July BBQ.  It was almost completely gone by the end of the night and it made a huge pan, 18 x 12″.

crust

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes

filling

1 (6 oz) box strawberry jello

1 1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

20 oz (2 1/2 cups) Sprite

32 oz strawberries, washed and tops removed

handful of blueberries for a red, white and blue dessert if desired

Cool Whip and/or vanilla ice cream

1  For the crust, preheat oven to 350.  Combine all crust ingredients in bowl of food processor and pulse until crumbly.  Press into bottom of half sheet pan, 18 x 12″.

2  Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

3  For the filling, cook jello, sugar, cornstarch, salt and Sprite over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and whisk until thickened.  Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

4  Slice strawberries and arrange over crust.  (I added a handful of blueberries because I wanted red (strawberries), white (Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream) and blue (blueberries) for the 4th of July.  Pour jello mixture over berries.  Refrigerate 2 hours or until set.

5  Serve with the Cool Whip and/or vanilla ice cream.
