  1. Combine mashed strawberries and 3/4 cup water in a saucepan; bring to a boil and simmer for about 3 minutes. Strain juice from cooked strawberries and add enough water to make 1 cup juice. Discard pulp.
  2. Combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt in a saucepan; stir strawberry juice into sugar mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until clear and thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir sliced strawberries into strawberry sauce.

This was so easy and simple. My first strawberry pie and it was DELICIOUS! Make sure to use fresh strawberries in season. Thank you for a great recipe!

Great! I made with Mini Cheesecakes III from this site. This recipe definitely makes more than what is needed for 12 mini cheesecakes. The only thing I did different was puree the strawberries and juice in the first step as opposed to straining it. This made the sauce less translucent (and maybe less perfectly pretty), but was still delicious, and I felt better about not wasting those great strawberries!

I made this recipe with a class of first graders to make strawberry turnovers by filling puff pastry squares. They especially loved mashing the strawberries. It is literally so easy a six-year-old can do (most of) it.

Gosh...very easy! I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and it was plenty sweet. I pulverized the strawberries with my cuisinart stick blender, then strained it for seeds. I used all the purée. I will definitely use this recipe again.

I thought the glaze was very good however, it was a little to sweet for me I think next time I'll decrease the sugar to 1/2 cup.

Used 1/2 cup coconut sugar instead of white because its way more healthy. Turned it an ugly brown color but I don't care much about that. I also kept the mashed strawberries and mixed them in. Also use potato starch instead of gmo corn starch.

As written it was good enough to tweet. It was soupy and a tad too sweet. The second time I made it, I decreased the sugar to 1/2 C. For the 1 C, of strawberries, I used my Magic Bullet. No need to strain! I used 4 T, of cornstarch = gelled perfectly! It even sliced perfectly.
