Prepare pie crust: either, bake a pastry shell (traditional and tasty), or prepare a graham cracker, or oreo cookie pie shell -- your choice
Wash, de-stem, and cut three cups of berries in thick vertical slices (about 3 per berry) can also simply leave whole, or cut in half (vertically) to make them easier to distribute, and place them in the prepared pie shell.
Make Glaze: Crush 1 cup of fresh strawberries and cook (low boil) with the water for 5 minutes
Strain to remove the seeds
Put the cornstarch in 4 Tbsp cold water to blend before adding to hot juice
Combine the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and butter with the juice and cook for 3-5 minutes to thicken
Pour the glaze over the berries in the pie shell and set in fridge to cool for at least an hour.
Serve with whipped cream topped with more berries.
