Fresh Strawberry Pie - Great Recipe, Member Bev.Linn

I made this recipe and followed the recipe exactly as listed. It turned out perfect! Maybe the folks who couldn't get the filling to thicken used a teaspoon to measure instead of a tablespoon for measuring the cornstarch, or maybe it wasn't cooked long enough. After it comes to a rolling boil over medium heat it takes about 6 - 8 minutes to completely thicken.
