Strawberry Pie

My friend, Emily, posted this recipe on Facebook today. I haven't had a chance to taste it, but I've heard rave reviews!!

1 quart strawberries
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
optional: 3-5 drops for red food coloring (I DO NOT USE THIS!!)
1 baked 9-inch pie shells
whipped cream ( or Cool Whip)


Crush 1 cup of red ripe strawberries, add water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Strain. Add water, if necessary, to make 1 cup liquid. Combine cornstarch, sugar, and salt and add to liquid. Stir until smooth. Bring to a boil and stir constantly until mixture thickens. Cool (and add red food coloring). Place remaining whole strawberries in baked pie shell. Pour the glaze over the berries. Top the pie with whipped cream.
