Simple and Delicious Pie 
May 30, 2011 10:24 am 
Here is another strawberry recipe from that old church cook book I couldn't find when I was writing my cook book.

Strawberry Pie

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup butter or stick margarine

4 cups strawberries
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch

For crust: blend ingredients in a mixing bowl with pastry blender or with two knives. Press into an 8 inch pie pan. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool at room temperature, about one hour.

For filling: Quarter 2 cups strawberries and cook with sugar and cornstarch in a 2 quart saucepan over low heat until juice is thick and clear, about 15 minutes. Let cool in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Cut remaining strawberries in half and place in cooled crust. Pour cooked strawberries over all and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Serves 6 to 8.

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
