8 or 9" pie crust (I like graham cracker crust)

3 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
2 Tbs. sugar

1 qt. strawberries, divided
1 cup water, divided
1 cup sugar
3 Tbs. corn starch

Combine cream cheese with 2 Tbs. sugar. Spread over the bottom of the pie crust. Refrigerate.

Wash, drain, hull strawberries. Puree 1 cup strawberries; mix with 2/3 cup water and simmer about 3 minutes.

Mix corn starch and 1 cup sugar together; stir in 1/3 cup water. Turn up heat under strawberries and stir in the corn starch mixture. Boil about 1 minute, stirring constantly to make glaze. Cool.

Space uncooked strawberries over the cream cheese layer in the pie crust, saving 4 or 5 nice looking ones. Pour glace over berries. Cut the reserved berries in half and use to garnish the top of the pie.

Serve with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.

Fresh or frozen raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or pitted sweet cherries may be used in place of the strawberries.
