Frosty Strawberry Pie

I am enjoying a slice with a quart-size ice tea!!

I always seem to have a supply of some kind of berries in my fridge.  I remembered a pie that my Mom and I used to make back in the '70's.  It's a VERY easy recipe, requiring just a few ingredients.

1 box strawberry gelatin (I used sugar-free)
1 1/4 cups boiling water
2 cups vanilla ice cream (I used a carb-smart)
1 pie crust, baked or graham cracker
2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced

In a medium sized bolw, add the gelatin.  Pour the boiling water over the gelatin and whisk until it's dissolved.  Add the ice cream and stir until it is melted.  Put the bowl into the fridge and chill until it is thick, but not set.  This takes 20-25 minutes.  Add the sliced strawberries and stir.  Pour into the crust and chill for several hours. 

There you have it...a quick, easy, Summertime dessert!
