Strawberry Pie

Fathers Day is a great day for Strawberry Pie. 
I made 2 lg 12 inch pies. So I did this recipe x3.
Make sure to let the mixture set up well. I like to mix the strawberries and gelatin mixture together. Maybe even put it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before putting in the pie crust.
