Strawberry Pie

1 cup sugar
4 Tbs. cornstarch
4 Tbs. strawberry Jello
1 cup water
1 pint strawberries
1 graham cracker crust

Mix sugar, cornstarch, jello, and water in a heavy saucepan and cook until thick.  Cool.

(Note:  Mom says to make this with sugar-free jello, you should boil the sugar, cornstarch and water until thick. 

Remove from the heat and beat in a small package (all or part?) of sugar-free jello.  Cool.  The pie is more creamy when using the sugar-free.)

While the jello mixture is cooling, slice a pint of strawberries and place in the pie crust.  Pour the cooled mixture over the strawberries and refrigerate.

Serve with Cool Whip.

 

 

The first time I made this recipe for my husband, I used way too much jello and cornstarch. 

The pie was rather rubbery, and my husband has referred to it as "Gummy Pie" ever since.
