After following these boys up the mountain all day...
Thank you for understanding.
Fresh Strawberry Pie
from Better Homes & Gardens
8 c. fresh strawberries
2/3 c. water
2/3 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
Remove stems from strawberries and slice into halves.
For glaze, in a blender or food processor combine 1 cup of the strawberries and the water. Cover and blend until smooth. Add enough additional water to the mixture to equal 1 1/2 cups. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in blended strawberry mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat; cool for 10 minutes without stirring.
Spread about 1/4 cup of the glaze over bottom and sides of a preprepared baked pastry shell. Arrange half of the strawberries in the pastry shell.
Carefully spoon half of the glaze over strawberries, making sure all berries are covered. Arrange remaining berries over first layer. Spoon remaining glaze over berries, covering them. Chill 1-2 hours. If desired top with whipped cream. Or better yet, vanilla ice cream.
