This is an old recipe my mother cut from a local newspaper column when I was a child in the 1950s.

Piecrust Shell, baked and cooled
1 quart fresh Strawberries, washed and hulled
1 c. sugar
3 T. Corn Starch
1 cup Water
2 tsp. Brandy Flavoring
Few drops red food coloring
1 cup Whipping Cream, whipped and sweetened

Cut up 1 cup of berries. Mix sugar and corn starch in medium saucepan. Stir in water gradually until smooth. Add the cut-up berries. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and clear. Stir in brandy flavoring and food color. Stir in remaining berries, saving 1/3 cup for garnish. Refrigerate until filling mounds. Pour into baked piecrust shell. Chill until firm, about 4 hours. Top with whipped cream and reserved berriies.
