The recipe is a fresh fruit pie, and is very similar to the fresh strawberry pies that are served at the Big Boy Restaurants.
1 Cup Water
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/4 Teaspoon Red Food Coloring
1 Cup all-purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Margarine
3 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 Cups Fresh Strawberries, hulled
Mix together the water, white sugar, salt, cornstarch and food coloring and cook, stirring constantly, in a saucepan for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Set aside to cool.
Make the crust by combining flour, margarine, sugar and vanilla - press this into a deep 9 inch pie pan. Prick all over and bake at 350 degrees F until a light golden browned.
When crust is cool, place berries in the shell and pour the thickened mixture over the top. Refrigerate.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
