Fresh Strawberry Pie

This is one of my husband's favorite things. There is not much better then a fresh strawberry pie. Except for maybe a fresh strawberry pie and Target shopping spree. I'm just sayin'.  We have a patch here in town where you can go and pick your own. My husband eagerly goes. He knows he gets a pie out of the deal. This is the perfect end to any summer meal! You can make it with pie crust or graham cracker crust. We prefer graham cracker crust.


1 prepared pie shell or graham cracker crust
2 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin


In a saucepan mix together sugar, cornstarch, and water. Cook on medium heat until sugar and gelatin melts and mixture thickens. About 5 minutes. Mix in gelatin. Cool to room temperature.

Arrange strawberries points up in pie crust. Pour gelatin mixture over strawberries. Chill for at least 4 hours or until set. If you can stand it! Great served with whipped cream.
