Remove from heat, let cool slightly and carefully but quickly stir in egg yolks; mix well. Return to heat and bring to boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in butter and rose water. Let cool 10 minutes. Spoon alternate layers of custard and strawberries into piecrust and swirl slightly with knife.
