Wash strawberries carefully; let dry. Stem strawberries, selecting larger ones to put on top of pie. Reserve smaller ones to put in filling.

Place large strawberries, cut side down on top. Spread currant jelly; after it has been softened to consistency of thickened gelatin, over top of pie, glazing strawberries. Cover and refrigerate several hours. Or freeze overnight before serving; allow about 1 hour to thaw slightly before cutting. Can be served with additional whipped cream if desired.
