We have always called this recipe the "Big Boy" Strawberry Pie, like they serve in the Big Boy Restaurants! I have been making this pie for years! Always get compliments on the taste and it looks so pretty. Make sure you let your jello/cornstarch mixture cool before you add to pie. You don't want too "cook" your strawberries. I always leave my berries whole unless they are way huge, then I may cut in half. Another hint (I learned from my mother in law) is spread some softned cream cheese on bottom of pie crust before adding berries and gel. It will stop the berries/jello from bleeding thru and soaking the pie crust. I may use 4 oz cream cheese softned and add 2 T or even 1/4 c powdered sugar. Mix together and spread on crust before adding pie filling. Works well with any uncooked fruit pie. Who wouldn't like a little sweetened cream cheese with their strawberries. :)
