Fresh Strawberry Almond Pie
1-1/2 Cups Crushed Shortbread Cookies
1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Slivered Almonds
1/3 Cup Butter or Margarine, Melted
6 Cups fresh cut Strawberries, sliced in half
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/3 Cup Water
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Tsp. Almond Extract
Sweetened Whipped Cream
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together all Crust ingredients. Press on bottom and up sides of 9" pie pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool completely.
Mash enough Strawberries to equal 1 cup. In a 2 quart saucepan, combine Sugar and Cornstarch. Stir in mashed Strawberry Mixture and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until Mixture thickens and comes to a full boil (8-10 minutes). Boil 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in Salt and Almond Extract. Cool 10 minutes.
Fill baked Crust with remaining Strawberries. Pour cooked Strawberry Mixture over Strawberries. Refrigerate at least 3 hours. Garnish with Sweetened Whipped Cream and serve.
