  • Whisk together the cornstarch, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower the heat and simmer for a few minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • Stir in the dried strawberry gelatin and let cool, stirring now and again.
  • Strawberries should be cleaned, cut, and added to a chilled pie crust. Cover the strawberries with the strawberry gelatin mixture.
  • Once set, refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours.
  • If preferred, top cold servings with whipped cream.
