Fresh Strawberry Pie Bites (sugarapron)

Homemade All Butter Pie Crust or 2 pre-made, ready to roll pie crusts
4 – 6 c fresh strawberries, chopped and hulled
1 c water
1 c sugar
1 3 oz box Strawberry Jell-O
3 T cornstarch
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour (or use nonstick cooking spray) a mini-muffin pan. Set aside. Roll the dough or pie crust out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin. Using a round cookie or biscuit cutter (approx 3″ diameter) cut at least 24 rounds out (or 12 rounds of each pie crust, if using store bought). Carefully press each round into the mini-muffin pan. Use your fingers to round the ends into a pie crust. Brush egg wash from one egg to the top edges of each pie. Bake for 15 – 20 min or until golden around the edges. Remove from oven and let the crust cool while you make the filling. Once cooled, use the tip of a knife to loosen the crusts from the mini muffin cups, but keep them in the pan. Put the water, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Whisk constantly until it become thick, about 3 min. Whisk in the Jell-O and cook for a minute longer. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 – 15 min. As the glaze cools, place strawberries straight into the mini pie crusts. Pour the glaze over the strawberries. Refrigerate until set. Decorate with whipped cream before serving. Keep refrigerated. Yield: 24.
