Strawberry Pie ~ A Summer Favorite

It’s a once or twice a year thing. DSC_0648

When strawberries begin to go on sale, when they are at their cheapest, we buy a pound or two and I make this scrumptious dessert. Jason is not normally a fan of pie, but this one is in his dreams! This pie is the essence of summertime with its fruity sweetness, cool smoothness, and crispy, flaky crust.

Ingredients:

1 pie crust baked

1-2 lbs. of strawberries (I use 2 lbs. for my deep dish pie plate. If yours isn’t deep dish, 1 lb. may be enough.)DSC_0616

Washed,
