Strawberries are abundant in the summer time. Below you will find two recipes that are delicious.
This is the best ever strawberry pie and is easy to make.
Bake pie shell according to package directions. I like to use Pillsbury pie crusts or Pet pie shells in the pan.
Wash and slice one pint of strawberries.
Combine in a saucepan the following and cook until thick, stirring constantly:
3/4 c. sugar 3 Tablespoons cornstarch dash of salt 1 c. water 1 Tablespoon butter
When thick stir in 2-3 drops red food coloring.
Stir in strawberries and add to cooked pie shell. Chill for 2-3 hours. Top with cool whip, then enjoy yourself and sit back to receive all the compliments on your best ever strawberry pie.
If you like, you can layer strawberries, then layer bananas, then another layer of strawberries and make your best ever strawberry and banana pie
