FRESH STRAWBERRY PIE

This is my favorite fresh strawberry pie recipe! You can use any fresh fruit my daughter-in-law makes it with fresh peaches. Yummy!

1 1/2 qt strawberries
2 cup water
1 3/4 cup sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
3 oz box strawberry jello
Cool Whip

Cook sugar, water, cornstarch until thickened ( I stir the cornstarch into about 1/2 cup of the water and then add to the rest, so you don't have any lumps). Add the box of dry jello and stir until well blended. Pour over washed and dried, halved strawberries placed in baked pie shells. (I use the pie crust that is in my recipe blog, just roll out and place in to pie pan and crimp edges and prick bottom and sides with a fork and bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes).
Cool in refrigerator and just before serving spread cool whip over the top.
This recipe makes 2 pies.
