Step 1

Peel and section grapefruit.
Place sections in a strainer over a bowl. Leave overnight in the refrigerator to drain well.
Cook sugar and next three ingredients over medium-high heat until it forms a thick, clear syrup.
Add gelatin and stir until dissolved.
Spoon a small amount of the gelatin mixture to cover the bottom of the baked pie crust (about 1/4-inch thick). Reserve the rest of the mixture.
Chill the pie for about an hour until the gelatin congeals.
When the gelatin congeals, place the drained grapefruit sections in the pie shell.
Pour the reserved gelatin mixture over the grapefruit sections.
Chill the pie again until the gelatin sets.
Top with whipped cream.
