Strawberry Pie (with cornstarch glaze)

Strawberry Pie (with cornstarch glaze)

Looking forward to real local fresh strawberries for this, YUM!

4 cups strawberries
1 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
10-inch baked pie shell

Combine 1 cup of the berries, 2/3 cup water, and lemon juice in a
saucepan. Simmer over low heat for about three minutes. Strain the
berries from the juice.

Mix the sugar, cornstarch, and remaining water and add to the hot
berry juice mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from
heat and cool. Put the other 3 cups of berries in a 10-inch baked pie
shell and pour the glaze over the top and chill. Great with or without
whipped cream!
