Strawberry season isn't far away. Fresh strawberries are showing up in the supermarkets and it's time to enjoy them in things like my mother's fresh strawberry pie!

1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 T. cornstarch
1 tsp. margarine, vegan
1 baked pie shell (gluten free if necessary)
red food coloring if desired

Crush 1/2 quart of berries. Blend with sugar, cornstarch, and water. Heat to a boil (2 min). Add margarine and food coloring. Fill pastry shell with chilled berries. Pour glaze over berries. Chill. Serve with whipped topping of choice.
