    List of Ingredients

    Sky-High Strawberry Pie

    3 quarts fresh strawberries, divided
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    6 Tablespoons cornstarch
    2/3 cup water
    Red food coloring, optional
    1 deep-dish pastry shell (10 inches), baked
    1 cup heavy cream
    1 1/2 Tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix


    In a large bowl, mash enough berries to equal 3 cups. In a saucepan,
    combine the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the mashed berries and
    water; mix well. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring
    constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; add
    food coloring if desired. Pour into a large bowl. Chill for 20
    minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is just slightly warm.
    Fold in the remaining berries. Pile into pie shell. Chill for 2-3
    hours. In a small mixing bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form.
    Sprinkle pudding mix over cream and whip until stiff. Pipe around
    edge of pie or dollop on individual slices.

    Yield: 8-10 servings
