Recipe: Fresh Strawberry Pie

This pie is the kind of pie your granny use to make for Sunday dinner.  I just love pie!  Especially any cold pie for the hot summer months.  Once again, this is a recipe from that notebook my mother wrote in long hand form for me just before I got married.  God Bless Her!  Because………I couldn’t boil water dry out of the pot when I got married.  Luckily, I can read directions! 

Mimi’s Strawberry Pie

1 quart fresh strawberries, washed and stemmed
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1/2 pint whipping cream
baked pie shell

Crush half of the berries and add the 1 cup of sugar, cornstarch, salt and water.  Cook over low heat or in a double boiler until thick and clear.  Stir constantly.  cut remaining berries in half and place in the baked pie shell.  Pour cooled glaze over berries.  Whip the whipping cream with a little sugar to sweeten it and spread over top of pie.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Ya’ll Enjoy!
