Summer never tasted sweeter. This quick and fruity dessert is sure to please.

  • 1 qt. strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • Red food coloring (optional)
  • 1 baked pie shell

Wash berries and hull (remove stems). Put 1/3 of the berries in a saucepan and crush. Mix sugar and cornstarch and add to crushed berries along with the lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Cool. Cut remaining berries into slices and mix with the cooked mixture.
