Fresh Raspberry Pie

When the raspberry patch is producing pints of precious raspberries, plan on preparing this seasonal treat.

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup water

1 package (3 ounces) raspberry gelatin

4 cups fresh raspberries

1 graham crackers crust (9 inches), baked Whipped cream, optional

Directions;

In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water until smooth; bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Cool for 15 minutes.

Place raspberries in the crust; slowly pour gelatin mixture over berries. Chill until set, about 3 hours.

Garnish with whipped cream if desired.
