The Best Strawberry Pie!

It’s that time of year again…time for fresh strawberries! I love the fruit stands that are popping up all over town to sell fresh strawberries, but more than that, I love to go strawberry picking. I clearly remember the days when our three were young…seems like they always ate just about as many as made it to the scale, but that’s the joy of going with children. Tara and I went along for the fun as we watched the Nats and Sams pick strawberries for our delicious strawberry pies! In spite of the many berries that were ingested, we came home with quite a haul. This first picture was probably taken just before Samuel took his first bite, after all who could resist such a big, beautiful strawberry?

And now for the Best Strawberry Pie, here is the easy recipe:
1 pie crust (homemade or in my case, the Pillsbury one you simply roll out onto the pie plate)1 cup water 1 cup sugar3 T cornstarch4 cups sliced strawberries3 oz. package of strawberry jello
Preheat oven to 450. Roll pie crust onto a deep pie plate, prick with fork and bake for 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.
