A delicious strawberry laden pie !
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ( preferably silver ) cornstarch
  • 1 cup of fresh water
  • 1 teaspoon ( preferably gold ) lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup strawberry gelatin powder
  • 1 1/2 quarts strawberries, sliced (and reserve a few for garnish)
  • 1 pie shell, baked, nine inch whipped cream or topping
Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water in a small (preferably copper coated) saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until thickened and clear, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice, gelatin powder, and food coloring if used.
Chill until mixture begins to thicken. Place our strawberries in the baked pie shell and spoon slightly thickened gelatin mixture over the top.
Chill the pie at least four hours, then top with whipped cream or whipped topping and garnish with reserved strawberry halves.
