1frozen pie crust (deep dish if you can find it)
1 1/4cupsgranulated sugar
3Tbspdry strawberry gelatin(like Jello - about 1/2 a 3 oz box)
2cupssliced strawberries(sliced in half or quarters, depending on size of berries)
whipped cream, for garnish(optional)
Prick bottom and sides of frozen pie crust with fork, and bake according to package directions. If you're worried about the crust puffing up, before baking, place a piece of parchment paper inside the crust and add about a cup of dried beans or rice. Let cool.
To a small sauce pan, add water, sugar, and cornstarch and whisk to combine. Heat over MED heat until boiling, reduce heat a bit and simmer several minutes, until thickened.
Whisk in dry strawberry gelatin and set aside to cool, stirring occasionally.
Wash and slice strawberries, then add to cooled pie crust. Pour strawberry gelatin mixture over strawberries. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, until set.
Serve cold, with whipped cream if desired.
Prep and cook time does not include pie baking time, as different manufacturers call for different baking times.
