4 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 pkg (3 oz) strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups cornstarch
1 tablespoon red food color
1 pint strawberries
2 baked 9-inch pie shells
sweetened whipped cream

For glaze: In medium saucepan, combine 3 cups of water, sugar and gelatin. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. In small bowl, gradually mix 1 remaining cup water into cornstarch until smooth. Add to saucepan, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes or until mixture is thick and fairly clear. Stir in food color. Remove from heat and let stand at room temperature until cool Do not refrigerate.
For pies: Spread 1/4 cup glaze onto the bottom of each pie shell. In large bowl, combine strawberries and 2 cups of the glaze. Mix gently to coat evenly. Spoon half of the mixture into each pie shell, arranging berries attractively. Spoon half of the remaining glaze over each pie, smoothing and sealing glaze to edge of crust with spoon. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Top with whipped cream.
