Fresh Strawberry Pie
1 9-inch pie shell, baked and cooled
2-3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup mashed fruit
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
When you take the pie shell out of the oven, sprinkle chocolate chips over half of the pie shell, pop back into the oven for about one minute, remove. With the back of a spoon, spread the melted chocolate over the bottom of the shell.
Fill pie shell with sliced fruit. In a saucepan, boil together mashed fruit, orange juice, sugar and cornstarch until the mixture is clear and slightly thickened.
Pour heated mixture over fruit in pie shell. Let cool.
This recipe also works with peaches in place of strawberries.
