Fresh Strawberry Pie


I think that California is the only place I have every actually seen this. It may be popular in other parts of the country, but I have not seen it since we moved to Tennessee in 2004.

Ingredients

pre-baked pie crust

2 pints strawberries

2 cup sugar

3 cups whipped cream

2 T corn starch

1 cup water

Any type of pre-made pie crust will work. I prefer to make one of my pie crusts & bake it, but a graham cracker crust will work too.

Remove the tops from the Strawberries and slice. Put in a large bowl and pour sugar over them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Drain all accumulated juice from strawberries and transfer to a sauce pan. Add corn starch to cup of water. Bring Strawberry juice to a boil, stirring constantly and add water. Bring back to a boil and continue stirring for 5 minutes. Allow to cool & thicken for 5 minutes then pour over strawberries, stirring gently to coat. Pour coated strawberries into pie shell. Cover top of pie with whipped cream.

There's no strawberry pies in Tennessee? They are missing out! It's one of my many favorites.
