Fresh Strawberry Pie

1 unbaked pie shell
Crush 1 cup berries and cook with one cup water. Boil about two minutes. Drain and save juice. Add enough water to make 1¼ cup juice.

Combine ¾ cup sugar with 3 T. cornstarch and berry juice. Cook, stirring continually until clear. Add about 5 drops of red food coloring if desired. Spread about ¼ cup juice in bottom of pie shell. Slice one row of berries over glaze. Spoon a little glaze over berries. Stand very nice, ripe strawberries upside down on glaze. Pour rest of glaze over berries. Cool and serve with cool whip.
