    1 stick butter, melted
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 cup flour
    4 cups whole strawberries, hulled
    11/2 cups warm water

    2 drops red food coloring
    Whipped cream

    Preheat oven to 400°. Mix all crust ingredients and pat into a 9-inch pie
    plate. Prick the bottom with a fork and bake for about 15 minutes, or
    until lightly browned . Cool. Arrange whole strawberries in the crust. In
    a saucepan, cook water, sugar, and corn starch until the mixture becomes
    clear. Add gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add food coloring. Pour over
    the strawberries that are in the crust. Chill well. Top with whipped cream
    before serving.
