A Delightful Fruit Pie

My mother would often make this pie in the summertime following our trips to the nearby strawberry patches in southwest Ohio where I grew up. It was always a delightful end to warm summer days:

Strawberry Pie

9" pie shell, baked according to directions
1 qt of strawberries cleaned and put in pie shell, points side up.

Set aside. Then, mix the following ingredients together:

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
3 Tbsp of cornstarch
3 Tbsp of strawberry jello mix

Boil this mixture for 1 minute in sauce pan. Cool and refrigerate gel before pouring over strawberries in pie shell. Refrigerate; top with cool whip before serving.

A Note From Bethany...
You can use an 8" pie shell with 1 pint of strawberries to make a smaller pie.
