If you use FRESH FROM THE GARDEN STRAWBERRIES this will be a SOUPY MESS. That being said, you can turn this into cobbler very easily and it really is delicious. I used garden fresh strawberries and mashed about 3/4ths of them using the remaining 1/4th to line the bottom of the crust. Minutes after they begin to cook, you will realize how much water there will be. I only mixed 1/2 a cup of water with 3 tbsp of cornstarch and only used 3/4 a cup of sugar plus a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon - still too runny. This is apparently a big complaint with this recipe if you are using "real strawberries". Once I realized how soupy it was, I just made a basic cinnamon/sugar/flour/butter cobbler topping and put it on top. It was very good, just nothing like a set-pie consistency.
