Thickened Strawberries (pie filling)

This is enough to cover a boxed Jello cheesecake (I usually do mine in a square pan). It’s also delicious warm over pancakes, French toast, waffles, etc. This is really my blueberry pie filling recipe, halved (the recipe came from Johnson Blueberry Farm).

Make paste of
1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
2 ½ tablespoons water

1 cup mashed strawberries
¼ cup sugar
into saucepan.

Add paste and stir well. Heat slowly until mixture is thick.
