Weight Watchers Strawberry Pie

I will preface this recipe with the fact that it did not stiffen or set up like it should have, but we all LOVED it.  It was more of a cobbler than a pie.  Enjoy the summer yummies!

Yields 10 slices
5 WW Points Plus Per Slice

2 pounds strawberries hulled, sliced
3/4 cup(s) sugar, granulated
1/2 cup(s) cranberry juice cocktail, or cranberry-strawberry juice (I used the strawberry)
1/4 cup(s) cornstarch (do NOT use liquid cornstarch)
6 oz reduced fat graham cracker pie crust
Low fat Cool Whip for topping

Combine 3 cups sliced strawberries, sugar, and juice in a medium saucepan.
Mash berries in pan with potato masher; stir in cornstarch and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until very thick, about 1 minute.
Remove from heat; let cool slightly and then stir in remaining sliced strawberries.  Scrape into pie crust. 
Let cool slightly; cover loosely with plastic lid from pie crust.  Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours. Serve with Cool Whip topping.
