"This pie is my specialty. It's fairly simple to make but so dramatic to serve. The ultimate taste of spring, this luscious pie has such a big, fresh berry taste I've had many requests to bring it to gatherings." - Janet Mooberry In a large mixing bowl, mash enough berries to equal 3 cups. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch.

Stir in the mashed berries and water; mix well. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Remove from the heat; add food coloring if desired. Pour int a large bowl.

Chill for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is just slightly warm. Fold in the remaining berries. Pile into pie shell.

Chill for 2-3 hours. In a small mixing bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Sprinkle pudding mix over cream and whip until stiff.

Pipe around edge of pie or dollop on individual slices.
