Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe
This is a quick and easy fresh strawberry pie recipe that tastes like summer itself.
Strawberry pie, made out of fresh, especially local, strawberries is such a wonderful treat.
You wouldn't think it could be good for you, but strawberries are one of the healthiest foods around. (Okay I admit, the sugar isn't that great. But it is a treat.)
Stir together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water and crushed berries gradually. Cook all over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute longer. Stir in a few drops of red food coloring if desired. Let cool.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Spread it on the bottom of a cooled baked pie shell. Fill the shell with the whole strawberries. Pour cooled cooked berry mixture over the top. Chill for at least 3 hours to set.
One pie is about 6 servings.
