My apologies for the severe lack of new recipes for several weeks!  I've been busy between working and baking cookies!  But it's time to resume the good old blog, and a classic Strawberry Pie recipe seems to be fitting for this time of year.  This is one my mom makes every spring and summer.  We're having it on Easter, which is always a great way to round out the Easter dinner.  Fresh strawberries...mmmm....just makes me excited for summer!

Fresh Strawberry Pie

(serves 8)

1 quart fresh strawberries

1 refrigerated pie crust

1 cup sugar

3 T. cornstarch

3/4 cup water


Arrange half 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. Top with whipped cream.
