Strawberry Pie

I cut this recipe out of the Columbus Dispatch probably over 40 years ago!  It is one of my all-time favorite recipes & I can't tell you how many pies I've made over the years.  I can tell you that my dear darling & I can finish off a whole pie to ourselves in two days!!  We justify this by saying that:  A.  It doesn't keep well & B.  It gets runny after it's cut!!!!  Please try our favorite pie.

1 pre-baked pie shell (try the No Roll Pie Crust)

1 quart strawberries, cleaned & hulled & set aside

3/4 cup sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1 cup water
2 T. light corn syrup
pinch of salt

3 T. strawberry gelatin

Combine sugar & cornstarch in a heavy saucepan & stir.  Add water, corn syrup & salt.  Cook until thickened & opaque in color.  Remove from heat & add gelatin.  The original recipe said to add red food coloring, but I never do.  Stir to dissolve the gelatin.  Cool.

Pour over the berries. I usually cut the berries in half.  Mix gently & pour into the baked pie shell.  Chill.

Serves 6-8 (or 2 people in 2 days!!!!)
