Light Strawberry Gelatin Pie

 Light Strawberry Gelatin Pie
There's plenty of sweet berry flavor in this refreshing dessert. Made with sugar-free gelatin and a graham cracker crust, the summery pie is easy to fix and attractive enough to serve to guests. I sometimes substitute fresh peaches and peach gelatin. —D. Smith, Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania.
