Hot, hot day. Perfect time for strawberry pie.
Take a quart of strawberries and slice off the leaves.
Place them in a sauce pan with 3/4 cups of sugar and 1/3 cup of corn starch.
Crush them with a potato masher, then stir constantly with a wire wisk over medium high until boiling. Once boiling, leave for 30 more seconds then remove and allow to cool. Sugar, strawberries and corn starch is all you need!
Bake your pie shell while the mixture cools. It is such a pretty red color but no artificial food coloring and no gross gelatin stuff. When cooled, put the mixture into the pie shell and cover with sliced strawberries. Add freshly whipped cream if you like.
