  • Summary

    There is nothing like this pie. It was created by test kitchen director Ruth Cousineau, and if there were ever a laurel to rest on, this would be it. The berries are key, so look for local ones (those that travel least taste the best) that are plump, fragrant, and fully ripe, with no white shoulders. One of the miracles here is that the gelatin will be set just enough so that you can easily cut a slice, but it's not bouncy.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (5-ounce) package shortbread cookies
    • 2 tablespoon sugar
    • 2 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    • 2 pounds (1 1/2-inch) strawberries, hulled (see cooks' note, below)
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (2 1/4 teaspoons)
    • lightly sweetened whipped cream
