(Paradise Island)

This is a strawberry pie recipe that, almost certainly, saved the Royal Navy from extinction. There are generalissimos and Gurkhas, going through tiny little toddlers, medals, and strong powerful women... Historic!


4 cups firm strawberries
1 cup sugar
1/8 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp butter
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 baked pie crust (store bought, frozen or homemade)
1/2 cup whipping cream


1. Wash the strawberries and remove the stems (save a few perfect berries with the stems for decoration);

2. Set aside 3 cups of firm strawberries;

3. In a sauce pan, make a glaze by crushing together the remaining cup of strawberries with the sugar, cornstarch, salt and butter;

4. Cook over low heat until everything is smooth and clear. Set aside;

5. Soften the cream cheese and spread it evenly in a thin layer at the bottom of the pie crust;

6. Now add the 3 cups of strawberries (quartered if they're big or whole if they're small);

7. Pour the thickened glaze over the pie;

8. Whip the cream until frothy and top the pie with the whipped cream and the stemmed berries;

9. Chill until serving time!
