Fresh Strawberry Pie

Ingredients:

2 pounds quality, fresh strawberries

1 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons butter

couple of drops of red food coloring

 

1 baked 9 inch pie shell

Prick the surface of the pie crust to avoid bubbles. Bake 8-12 minutes, until golden brown.

 

Wash & hull strawberries. Do not allow to sit in water or pie will be runny. Mash enough strawberries to make about a cup of pulp.

 

Combine cornstarch, crushed strawberries, sugar & water in sauce pan. Stir well & cook over medium until the mixture begins to boil, stirring often. Cook two more minutes or until sauce becomes thick & translucent. Stir in butter & food coloring. Set aside to cool.

 

Fill cooled pie shell with strawberries. Unless very small, cut into chunks. Pour cooled glaze over berries. Chill pie for 3-4 hours.
