1-2-3 Strawberry Pie

Grace says this is from "some friend, I'm sure." From the last comment, this pie has the same problem as Frustration Pudding. What is it about strawberries?

In saucepan, stir sugar with gelatin. Stir in water; then cook over low heat, stirring, until just below boiling point. Remove from heat.

Add unthawed strawberries, lemon juice, and extract. Stir, breaking up berries with fork until berries thaw, and mixture thickens. Then fold in whipped cream.

Pour filling into baked shell. Refrigerate until set. Pie will be ready to serve in about one half hour.

Garnish with more whipped cream and berries if desired.

"As you know, I froze it and then thawed it just enough to cut it."
