Fruit you have to cook the frozen strawberries?

In the past when I've made other strawberry fillings I sliced some and left some whole at first then mashed them as they cooked in the pot.

Yes you are cooking the strawberries with all the other ingredients, until everything thickens up. Not before, thaw them out and drain extra water.
