8-9" pie shell
1 qt strawberries
1c water
3/4c sugar
3Tbsp cornstarch

Bake the empty pie shell according to the package directions.
Simmer 2.3c water and 1c strawberries for 3 minutes. Blend in sugar, cornstarch, and 1.3 c. water. Boil for 1 minute stirring constantly. Let the mixture cool. Put the rest of the strawberries in the pie shell and pour the mixture over the strawberries, refrigerate for 2 hours.

I got the whipped cream out and went all fancy with "lattice" mostly to hide the mixture. I cannot stress the importance of mixing the sugar and cornstarch in a sifter and addint it in that way because the cornstarch thickens the cooked mixture to create a nice "gel" like substance that holds the pie together. It will clomp together if you dont sift it well.

Here's another tip for smooth cornstarch mixing--wisk it into that 1/3 cup water that you need to add until dissolved. Then it's already dissolved before you start cooking it!

I love your version of the "lattice top"!  Great idea.
