All Natural Fresh Strawberry Pie

Fresh Strawberry Pie

Ingredients:

9 inch pie crust (recipe below)

2 quarts fresh strawberries

1  cup sugar

3 tablespoons corn starch

3/4 cup water

whipped cream

Shortbread pie crust:

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

3 tablespoons sugar

1 large egg yolk

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

Make pie crust by stirring  butter and sugar in a bowl. Add the egg yolk and stir. Add the flour and salt, and mix until crumbly. Press the dough into the bottom and up sides of a 9 in pie dish. Place in freezer for 20 minutes. Cook in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes and let it cool.

When ready to make the pie wash and dry the strawberries. Arrange 1/2 of them on the pie crust and save the remaining to make sauce.

To make filling:

Mash remaining berries and mix with sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil but keep stirring gently.

Mix the corn starch with the water in a small cup. Stir to dissolve and add to the strawberry sauce.

Cook the sauce on low heat for about 8-10 minutes until it thickens and becomes clear. Let the sauce cool before adding to the strawberries.

Chill the pie for at least two hours and serve with whipped cream.
