While chilling the dough, combine the strawberries and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Allow to stand for 1/2 hour. Combine the cold water and gelatin in a small measuring cup. Let stand for 5 minutes or so. Add the boiling water and mix to dissolve gelatin. Add to the strawberry mixture and chill slightly. Beat the whipping cream and 1 Tbsp of brown sugar until firm peaks form.

Roll out to the appropriate size between a sheet of waxed paper and the plastic wrap. Place in pie pan and press in firmly. Poke the bottom of the crust all over with a fork.
