16oz container of strawberries
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. water
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. butter
1 prepared pie crust
whipped cream, for topping
Cut the tops off all the strawberries and quarter them. Put the strawberries in a bowl with 2 cups of sugar, mix it up a bit, cover with some cling wrap and let it sit for a few hours.
When the strawberries have finished, mix together water, cornstarch and butter.
Stir strawberries, then drain off juice into a saucepan. Place pan over meadium high and bring to a boil. As soon as it boils, add in the cornstarch mixture and lower the heat, stirring until it takes on a nice syrupy glaze look.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Once cooled combine syrup and strawberries and pour into prepared pie crust.
Top with whipped cream.
Refrigerate, and serve chilled.
