It's strawberry time...yum!
Fresh strawberries straight from the fields...it sure doesn't get any better than that!
If you are fortunate to live in an area that grows strawberries then you know what I mean.
This time of year they are on the menu morning, noon and night!
Here is my favorite strawberry pie recipe that is sure to please.
Fresh Strawberry Pie
2 quarts strawberries
baked pie shell
1 c. sugar
4 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. water
Blend 2 c. berries. In a saucepan, add blended strawberries and sugar. Cook until bubbling. Add the cornstarch that has been dissolved in the water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes until thick. Cool.
Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of the baked pie shell. Fill the pie shell with a layer of berries, add a layer of sauce, add remaining berries and the final layer of sauce. Chill.
This is best chilled overnight or at least 6 hours. It will be tall and heaping with berries. It's best eaten within 3 days because the crust will become soggy. But, that usually isn't a problem!
