Onebaked single crust pie-crust(recipe below)
Fresh whipped cream lightly sweetenedfor serving
Take 1/2 of the strawberries and place in a medium saucepan with sugar and cornstarch. Mash the strawberries with a potato masher while cooking over medium heat.
Bring to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens to a pudding-like consistency, stirring constantly so it doesn’t burn. Once the mixture is thick, remove from heat and then let cool slightly.
Once cooled a bit, stir in the remaining strawberries and pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust. Place in the refrigerator and let set for a 3-4 hours before serving. Top with whipped cream, if you like.
