Rita Heikenfeld's Heavenly Strawberry Pie

Ingredients:
1 baked pie shell
5 or so cups strawberries, cut into halves or fourths if necessary, and measure after cutting up
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cold water
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 cup whipping cream
Sugar to taste - start with 2 tablespoons or less

Instructions:
In a medium saucepan, stir together 2 cups cut up strawberries and 3/4 cup sugar.
Whisk together the cold water, lemon juice and cornstarch.
Pour this over the strawberries and sugar and give it a good stir. Cook and stir over medium het until thickened and bubbly, then cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Gently fold 2 cups of the remaining berries into the chilled mixture. Spoon into pastry shell. Cover and chill 2 hours at least, or until firm.
Whip cream with 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form.
Serve pie with whipped cream and a dollop of remaining berries (1 cup or so).
