FRESH STRAWBERRY PIE

I have had this recipe since I was in high school. It is still a family favorite, one of my grandchildren's favorites.

2 9-inch pie shells, baked
1 1/2 cups sugar
5 tbsp cornstarch
2 small pkgs strawberry gelatin
2 1/2 cups boiling water
2 pints fresh strawberries, washed and stemmed (Cut in half if extremely large)
Whipped cream for serving

Cook the sugar, cornstarch, gelatin, and boiling water together in a medium saucepan over medium to medium-high heat. Cook until the mixture is bubbly, thickened, and has turned a clear red. Stir during cooking.

Arrange the strawberries in the two pie shells while the filling cools slightly.

Gently pour the gelatin mixture over the berries.

Chill until completely set.

Serve with whipped cream.
