 Strawberry Pie

Strawberry pie served with whipped cream tastes fantastic and delicious. And looks yummy too.

Ingredients:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 stick butter
1 1/2 tablespoon shortening
1/8 cup ice water

For the filling:

1 cup sugar
3 tablespoon corn starch
1 pint strawberries
1 12 ounce can 7-up
Whipped cream

Directions:

1. Put flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Cut the butter, and shortening into the flour. Process a few seconds until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.

2. Drop by drop add the water, processing briefly. The whole process should take about 20 to 30 seconds. Wrap and chill for an hour.

3. Remove from refrigerator, and let stand 15 minutes before rolling. You can double this up for a top and bottom crust.

4. In a medium sized sauce pan combine sugar, cornstarch, and 7-UP until creamy. Cook over a medium to a medium-high heat until the mixture becomes thick.

5. When this mixture becomes thick, cool to room temperature, and add a couple of drops of red food coloring.

6. Wash, and cut strawberries into quarters, or smaller depending on how large they are. Sprinkle a teaspoon or two of sugar on the strawberries, and place them into the shell.

7. Pour the cooled 7-Up mixture over the strawberries. Allow this to set for a few minutes. Serve with plenty of Whipped Cream.
