Remove the stems from the strawberries and wash them. Set them aside.
To make the glaze:Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil until thickened.
Remove the thickened mixture from the heat and stir in the jello. The mixture will become thin and watery. This is normal.
Pour the glaze over the fresh strawberries and stir to coat.
Pour the berries into the prebaked pie shell. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
Notes: Serve chilled pie with ice cream or whipped cream.
Store pie in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Cover the pie with a piece of plastic wrap that was sprayed with a little cooking spray. This keeps the plastic wrap from sticking to the berries.
