Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie with French Vanilla Ice Cream (Kawartha Dairy)
2 nine inch (deep) pie crusts (I make the shells from Tenderflake lard and store any extra shells in the freezer)
1 1/4 cups white sugar plus 1 tsp, divided
1/3 cup all-purpose flour plus 1 tsp, divided
3 tbsp corn starch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 1/2 cups strawberries (cut in half)
2 tbsp butter

Sugar to sprinkle on top.

In a small bowl, mix together 1 tsp each of the white sugar, and flour (to sprinkle onto the bottom pie shell). Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  In a large sized bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, corn starch, and cinnamon.  Add the strawberries and mix lightly.  Sprinkle the white sugar/flour mixture onto the bottom pie shell and then pour the strawberry mixture into the pie shell and dot with butter.  Dampen crust edges, lay top crust over.  Trim and crimp to seal.  Cut slits in top and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake (on middle rack) for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.  I recommend you put the pie on a baking sheet as the filling will tend to escape.  This pie is a little runny when eaten warm or at room temperature which is why I recommend the vanilla ice cream on the side.  The warm filling mixed with the ice cream is heavenly.  :D
