Bavarian Strawberry Pie

Kathryn Anderson of Wallkill, NY submitted this recipe to Taste of Home.

2 1/2 cups flaked coconut

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced

3/4 cup sugar

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

1/2 cup cold water

2 tsp lemon juice

1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

In a small bowl, combine coconut and butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9″ pie plate. Bake at 300 for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned (cover edges loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary). Cool on a wire rack.

In a large bowl, combine strawberries and sugar; let stand for 15 minutes. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Cook and stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved; stir in lemon juice. Stir into strawberry mixture. Cool to room temperature. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into crust. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before slicing.
