    Fresh Strawberry Almond Pie

    Crust:
    1-1/2 Cups Crushed Shortbread Cookies
    1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Slivered Almonds
    1/3 Cup Butter or Margarine, Melted


    Filling:
    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.
    Serves 8

    This sounds so yummy. I could have used it last week when I had a flat of strawberries to get rid of. Instead, I ended up with 26 jars of strawberry jam. ;)
