This pie is a sweet wonderful dessert that allows the sweetness of fresh strawberries to be enhanced by the glaze.
Pre-bake the pie shell at 400 degrees for 12 minutes until the pie is fully baked.
To make the glaze, you mix 1 c of sugar with 2 tablespoons of corn starch. Add 1 cup of boiling water. Cook in a small saucepan over medium heat until the glaze thickens. Remove from heat. Add 3 oz. of strawberry gelatin. Stir until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
Place strawberries in baked pie shells; position berries with points facing up.
Pour cooled gel mixture over strawberries.
Refrigerate until set. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
Absolutely delicious and so easy.
