I immediately thought of fresh strawberry pie. The recipe....One baked pie shell. I used some pastry I had in the freezer which was not really enough for the bottom shell but this is an experiment after all so I didn't care too much about the look.
1 cup white sugar, 3 tablespoons of corn starch and 3/4 cup water.
Finely chop about 1/3 of the strawberries, add the sugar, corn starch and water and place in a pan. Turn the heat to med low and stirring constantly bring to a boil, continue boiling and stirring for a minute.
Let the syrup stand until it reaches room temperature. Then add the rest of the strawberries and place the whole thing in the baked pie shell. Refrigerate until set...about 2 hours. Slice and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Oh my this is a delicious pie.
