  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup vanilla-flavored baking chips

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Combine wafer crumbs and butter, tossing with a fork until moistened. Press crumb mixture into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 9 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

  3. Place 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries, sugar, and salt in a blender; process until smooth.

  4. Combine boiling water and gelatin in a medium bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Stir in the pureed strawberry mixture.

  5. Spoon 4 cups sliced strawberries into cooled crust. Pour the gelatin mixture evenly over sliced strawberries. Chill, uncovered, 2 hours or until set.

  6. Place chips in a small heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Submerge bag in very hot water until chips melt. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag, and drizzle melted chips over pie.
