Delicious! I had a deep dish pie crust, so I increased the strawberries to fill the pie (but I kept the other ingredient quantities the same). I used about 3/4 of the strawberries whole in the pie and mashed the other 1/4 of the strawberries. Instead of following the directions as written, I mixed the mashed strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, and water in a saucepan and stirred until it boiled, then stirred for a minute or two more until it thickened. I made two pies and tried pouring the sauce over the berries in the first pie, but it was too thick and it didn't fill in the gaps, so I had to move the berries around to get the sauce to mix into the pie. With the second pie, I mixed the whole strawberries into the sauce in the pan and poured that mixture into the crust, which was easier. I "painted" the inside of the second crust with melted chocolate and let it set (as suggested by other reviewers) before adding the strawberries. It was good with the chocolate, but I think I preferred the pie without chocolate. I didn't try topping the pie with whipped cream because it was so wonderful that it didn't need it. I made the pies in the early afternoon and they were set by the evening. I think this pie will become an annual favorite when U-pick strawberries are in season.
