Description

Strawberry PieThis is a delightfully light celebration of late spring.

It's easy, and it's a good choice when strawberries go on sale at the supermarket because you have to use them fast before they spoil.

This one was made by my friends Debbie and Sonali at work. We used a frozen pie crust because rolling out a homemade pie crust is not very difficult, but it is a good way to get your work clothes dusted with flour! 

Ingredients

1eaPie Shell, Baked
2cStrawberries, mashed
2cStrawberries (sliced, small ones left whole)
3Tcornstarch
3⁄4cCold Water

  1. Wash and hull the berries.
  2. Stir the cornstarch into the cold water until dissolved.

  4. Put the biggest berries in the pie shell, reserving a few choice ones for decoration. Cover with the cooked berry mixture.
  5. Dress with the reserved berries.
