To create your strawberry layer, be careful to follow these instructions in order, to avoid unwanted lumps in your glaze. In a small saucepan, add sugar and corn starch. Mix until they are completely combined. Add water and stir. Your mixture will look like a watery milky substance.
Once any lumps are completely dissolved, turn the heat to medium-low. Cook over a low temperature until your mixture begins to thicken. Once it gets thick and starts to turn a translucent color, remove it from heat. Mix in your Jell-O packet and mix in. Sit to the side and allow to cool.
Using the strawberries that have been hulled, rinsed, and dried, arrange your strawberries on top of your cream cheese mixture. Once your strawberries are how you want them, cover them in the glaze.
After your pie has been assembled, place it in the fridge and allow it to chill for one to two hours. Remember, it is best if eaten the same day it was prepared. By allowing your pie chilling time, it will set up better and become more solid when you serve it.
