My friend Angie picked out this recipe on Thursday evening and by Friday morning we were in the kitchen together. She loves old fashion things- including her pie crusts. Strawberries were ripe and on sale in the grocery stores. She picked up the berries and I supplied the crust and within a few short hours we were enjoying this refreshing, delicious strawberry pie.

With my new rolling pin in hand… one that I rescued from an antique shop a couple of miles down the street from my house… we were off to create a mid-winter delight.
- Everything about this pie is simple and basic. Strawberries, gelatin, cornstarch and sugar. Ahhh, an easy pie to make. The only time involved was waiting the two hours for the gelatin mixture to set. It proved to be very simple and surprising more delicious than I had expected.
- We left out the strawberry extract, since we did not have it on hand and really didn’t miss it.
- Three of my four boys loved this pie. The surprise was that Nate, who is normally my fruit-aholic, did not care for it because he does not like gelatin products. On the other hand, my regular non-pie-eater Henry, LOVED it since he is big on jello.
