Strawberry Pie

(One 9" Pie)

  • 1 pkg. "JIFFY" Pie Crust Mix
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine or butter, softened
  • 4-5 Tbsp. cold water
  • 6 cups fresh strawberries, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 container (8 oz.) whipped topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Combine pie crust mix and margarine or butter.  Blend well.  Add 4-5 tablespoons of water (1 tablespoon at a time).  Stir with fork until dough holds together.  Form dough into a ball.  Roll out on well-floured surface to 1” larger than inverted pie pan.  Place in pan.  Trim edge and flute.  Prick bottom and sides of crust with fork.  Bake 10-13 minutes.  Set aside to cool.  In saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.  Mash enough strawberries to make 1-1/4 cups.  Add 1/2 cup water.  Stir into sugar mixture.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, and bring to a boil.  Cook an additional 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Set aside to cool.  Slice remaining strawberries and stir into cooled sauce.  Mix to coat.  Pour into cooled pie crust.  Chill and serve with whipped topping (optional).
