Strawberry Pie

1 T cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup mashed strawberries
few drops red food coloring

graham cracker crust
2 oz Ghiradelli dipping chocolate
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 T vanilla
2-3 cups whole cleaned strawberries.

For the glaze, heat the first 3 ingredients in small saucepan. Heat until it becomes clear. Add food coloring. Set aside to cool.

Nuke chocolate and then carefully cover the bottom and sides of crust with the chocolate. Put in fridge to harden.

Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in the condensed milk. Beat until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Pour into crust.

Insert strawberries large end down into the filling. Use as many as needed to cover. When glaze has cooled, pour over berries. Keep refrigerated. Let sit at least 4-6 hrs. to set.
