Strawberry Pie

Have never truly been a big fan of Shoney's Restaurants with one exception...Strawberry Pie!
Many years ago, I fell in love with it and little did I know that you could buy an entire pie to take home and wallow in, until my husband came home one night with a pie strapped to the buddy seat on his I said, this has been along time ago.
The recipe below is about as good as you can get to the real if you like Shoney's Strawberry Pie, go for it!

1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup water
1 pkg (3 oz.) strawberry gelatin
1 qt fresh whole strawberries
1 9-in baked pie shell

Put water, sugar and cornstarch in saucepan and cook over very low heat, stirring, until clear (about 3 to 5 minutes). Remove from heat and mix in gelatin. Arrange strawberries in pie shell and pour sauce over. Chill 4 to 6 hours or overnight and serve with Cool Whip or whipped cream.
