Strawberry Treat 'Easy Made' Pie

Comment on this recipe

I top it with a dab of lite Cool Whip. It's um-good. I make it often for family and friends.

Ingredients

1 graham cracker crust
2 cups fresh strawberries (can use frozen)
1 box (3 ounces) sugar free strawberry Jello
1-1/2 tablespoons corn starch
1-3/4 cups cold water

Instructions

Slice berries and cover bottom of crust loosely, but fully. Mix Jello and corn starch together, dry, in a medium saucepan. Add water stirring into the dry mixture. Start with medium heat and, stirring constantly, bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to prevent boiling over. Stir slowly yet constantly until it is thick like gravy. Remove from heat and slowly pour over strawberries, covering them gradually. Cool at room temperature and then place in refrigerator to set fully. When set, cover with lid provided with the shell and keep refrigerated until gone.
