Strawberry Pie

I got this recipe from our school's secretary. She claimed it was so easy to make, yet it looks so fancy! For some reason, pies really intimidate me, so I might be easily impressed...but this is delicious!! It's the perfect time of year as strawberry season winds down.

3/4 cup sugar
2 TBSP. cornstarch
1/5 cups water (in small pan)
3 oz. pkg. strawberry Jell-O
4 cups strawberries, sliced
9 inch baked pie shell (Eilene used Keebler graham cracker--the one that serves an extra piece)
cool whip/whipped cream

Mix first three ingredients in saucepan and cook until mixture is thick and clear. Remove from heat and stir in Jell-O. Fill a 9-inch bake pie shell with 4 cups strawberries and pour the mixture over the berries. Chill for several hours. Top with whipped cream just before serving (I think Eilene covered the entire thing in cool whip:) )
