Mix strawberries with sugar and tapioca. Let stand while making pastry. Combine flour and salt in bowl. Cut in shortening until uniform, but coarse. Reserve about ½ cupful of mixture; set aside. Sprinkle water over remaining mixture in bowl; toss with fork and press into ball. Roll on lightly-floured board to fit pie plate. Fill with strawberry mixture. Cut an 8 inch round piece of foil; lay over filling. Bake in preheated 400 oven for 35 minutes. Blend reserved ½ cupful of flour mixture, brown sugar and cinnamon. Remove foil; sprinkle mixture over pie. Continue baking for 30-40 minutes or until crust and crumb topping are browned. Cool.
Note: If pie bubbles over during baking, place a sheet of foil beneath it.
Your Strawberry Crumb Pie is ready. Buon appetito!
