Step-By-Step

1Heat half and half in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir in chocolate morsels; beat until smooth with wire whisk. Remove from heat; whisk in egg yolks one at a time, mixing until well blended. Return to heat and cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
2Cool; pour into pie shell and cool until set. 2 to 3 hours. Puree 1 pint of strawberries with lemon juice (there should be about 1 2/3 cups puree). Soften gelatin in water; warm over low heat to dissolve, then stir into berry puree. Chill until mixture begins to set.
