easy fresh strawberry pie

meet my new favorite dessert.
for a long time, i thought whipping up a shortcake was the yummiest and easiest strawberry dessert, but this strawberry pie is so delish it is worth the minimal extra work!
our family loves this really cold, with heaps of fresh sweetened whipped cream.

easy fresh strawberry pie
recipe from the prepared pantry
1 baked nine-inch pie shell
2 pounds fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
couple drops red food coloring (optional)
1 cup whipping cream
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
hull and wash berries. mash enough berries to make about one cup of pulp.
combine the sugar, cornstarch, crushed strawberries, and water in a saucepan. 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. add butter and food coloring. set aside to cool.

fill the cooled pie shell with whole or halved strawberries. pour the cooled glaze over the berries. refrigerate the pie for 2 to 3 hours.
