Bavarian Strawberry Pie Recipe

A coconut crust and pretty fluffy filling make this gluten free dessert special!

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups flaked coconut

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced

3/4 cup sugar

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

1/2 cup cold water

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine coconut and butter.  Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch pie plate.  Bake at 300 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned (over edges loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary).  Cool on a wire rack.

In a large bowl, combine strawberries and sugar; let stand for 15 minutes.  In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute.  Cook and stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved; stir in lemon juice.  Stir into strawberry mixture.  Cool to room temperature.  Fold in whipped cream.  Pour into crust.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before slicing.

Yield 8-10 servings
