Strawberry Pie

Strawberry (or Blueberry) Pie
You could probably use just about any fruit you want, I've even used peaches!

6 C fresh medium strawberries (1/2 for puree, 1/2 cut how ever you like)
¾ C sugar 
1 C water    
3 T cornstarch
5 drops red food coloring (optional)
1 9” baked pastry shell

Place half the fruit in a food processor, add the water, sugar, cornstarch (and food color if using) and puree. Pour into a small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stiring frequently until thickened. Place remaining fruit in pie crust, pour glaze over. Chill 3-4 hrs.

*Sugar substitutes may be used instead of sugar (check product for amnts), I do this for my mother. The pie sets up a bit differently, but it's still delish!
