For the Strawberry Filling:
1 Pound of Fresh, Cleaned Strawberries

Step 2: Preparing Ingredients!
Step 3: Combining Ingredients!
Do this by using either a pastry blender or a fork, cutting the butter into the flour until it is evenly distributed.
Step 4: Adding the Water.
Add another 1/4 a cup of cold water and continue mixing until dough begins to form and hold it's shape.
This may take another 1/4 cup of cold water depending on factors such as where you live or how much moisture is in the air.
Step 5: Kneading the Dough.
Wrap the dough in saran and refrigerate for a half hour.
Step 6: Whip Cream.
To make the whip cream, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream in a small bowl and use a beater or whisk to mix it until stiff peaks form.
Store in a container and refrigerate until needed.
Step 7: Strawberry Filling.
In a small sauce pan, combine your cut strawberries with your sugar, half the cup of water, and corn syrup.
Set on medium to medium-high heat and bring to a simmer.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the corn starch and the other half cup of water until combined.
Add the corn starch to the strawberry mixture and keep on simmer for about 10 minutes or until you mixture begins to thicken.
Take off the heat and put in a container to chill in the fridge.
Step 8: Rolling the Dough.
Roll out one of the pieces.
Step 9: Cutting the Fries.
Step 10: Seasoning the Fries.
Brush the pie crust fries with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Then place them in the oven preheated to 375 degrees to bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
