2 T. cornstarch
1/8 t. salt
1 pkg. (3 oz.) strawberry gelatin

Add gelatin and stir til dissolved. Brush a little gelatin mixture over pie crust. Chill gelatin mixture and pie crust til gelatin starts to thicken. Add grapefruit sections. Pour remaining gelatin mixture into pie crust and chill til set. Top with whipped cream.
