Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 baked nine-inch pie shell
2 pounds quality strawberries (you'll have some extra berries to snitch or use for garnish)
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
couple drops red food coloring (optional)
1 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions:
Directions:
1. Wash and hull the strawberries. Do not allow strawberries to sit in water, since they will absorb water and make the pie runny. Mash enough strawberries to make about one cup of pulp.

2. Combine sugar, cornstarch, crushed strawberries, and water in 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 and translucent.

3. Stir in the butter. Add the red coloring if desired. Set it aside to cool.

4. In the meantime, fill the cooled pie shell with strawberries. If the strawberries are small, use whole berries. If not, cut the strawberries into chunks. Pour the cooled glaze over the berries. Let the pie chill for 2 to 3 hours.

5. Whip the cream until peaks form, adding the powdered sugar when the cream begins to stiffen. After the pie has chilled, garnish the pie with whipped cream.
