Strawberry Pie

Since it's just about strawberry season, and with the holiday weekend coming up, I figured I'd post a nice, easy dessert recipe too. This is the best strawberry pie recipe I've found out there. Enjoy!

Strawberry Pie
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
1 quart fresh strawberries
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup cool water

1.      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.
2.      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.
