Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie

I got this from the internet a few years ago.  I do not remember where.  We like this because it uses the crushed strawberries in the glaze.  It isn’t as pretty as the clear red glazes, but the taste is great. {print recipe}

Fresh Strawberry Pie

1 baked pie shell

2 pounds quality strawberries

1 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup water

2 Tablespoons butter

Wash and hull the strawberries.  Mash enough strawberries to make about 1 cup of pulp.

Combine the sugar, cornstarch, crushed strawberries, and water in a saucepan.  Stir well and cook over medium heat until the mixture begins to boil, stirring often.  Cook for two more minutes or until the sauce becomes thick.  Stir in the butter and set it aside to cool.

Fill the pie shell with strawberries.  Pour the cooled glaze over the berries.  Let the pie chill for 2 – 3 hours.
