All I want is a recipe. How do I make a strawberry pie with frozen berries?

You can use frozen berries. Just add them with your chosen thickener and bake. It will take a bit longer, but it works.

Strawberry Pie

I have never made a strawberry so I don't have a thickener, a list of ingredients, or anything! I only have a bag of frozen strawberries!

Howdy, Kathleen!
Welcome to D.C.!
You certainly can use frozen berries.
Here is a link to a recent thread that might interest you.

Thaw or chop 3 cups of strawberries. Add 3/4 cup of sugar and mash together. Let sit for 30 minutes. Place the strawberry/sugar mixture into a pot and bring to a simmer. Make a simple roux of 3 tbs. all-purpose flour and 3 tbs butter in a seperate pan over medium heat. Stir the roux until slightly yellow in color (blonde). Quickly transfer the roux to the strawberries and stir until thickened and smooth. Stir in a bit of cream to thin it a little if need be. Add 1/4 tsp cinnamon and pour into a ready made pie shell. Bake, using the pie shell directions until the crust is golden brown.

There are better strawberry pies, but they require a home made crust, and are a bit trickier to get the filling to the right thickness. This was the easiest pie I could think of, except maybe by replacing the roux with a cornstarch slurry to thicken.
