Strawberry Pie


We have been very fortunate to have wonderful strawberries this summer. I have created and made several recipes using these luscious berries. By far my favorite recipe has been for strawberry pie.  This is a very simple and fast recipe.  It will soon become your favorite too!
Enjoy and Happy Cooking,                    Strawberry pie

1 (9 inch)pie crust, baked (I use King Arthur Flour and I make their double crust recipe)
2 quart fresh strawberries
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions
Arrange 1 qt. of strawberries in baked pastry shell.  Mash remaining berries and combine with sugar in a medium saucepan.  Place saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water.  Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into boiling strawberry mixture.  Reduce heat and simmer mixture until thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.  Pour mixture over berries in pastry shell.  Chill for several hours before serving.  In a small bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Serve each slice of pie with a dollop of whipped cream.
