recipe: strawberry icebox pie

Can you tell from this recipe that I'm trying to hang on to summer? I thought I would take advantage of one last batch of summer strawberries and make a delicious week night pie for Guy and I.
And did I mention it's easy as pie?
{sorry for the cheese...couldn't help it!}

{1 quart strawberries, 1/2 cup unsweetened cranberry juice, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup cornstarch}

{mix half the strawberries and the rest of the ingredients over medium heat. mash strawberries.}

{bring to a boil. reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring thoroughly.}
{mix the rest of the strawberries in (after it cools for 2-3 minutes) and pour into premade graham cracker crust}
{let rest in the fridge for at least 8 hours}

{mix 1/2 cup heavy cream with 2 tablespoons of sugar to make whipped cream}

{spread and serve!}

This was delicious! And way better than a pie that would cost twice as much and take twice as much effort!
Happy Tuesday loves!

Despite the fact I can cook and bake (and enjoy it too!) Carl is the kitchen master in our family now. So I shall order him to whip this up for us. Because it looks delicious!!!!
