~ Fresh Picked Strawberry's ~

On the way home from shopping on Saturday, we stopped off at our favorite little strawberry field right by our home. The strawberry's are picked daily and if they run out someone will pick as much as you want right from the field behind the little strawberry hut. So with nine baskets of delicious fresh strawberry's sitting on my lap while Gary drove, I said to him how about "Strawberry Pie". Now coming from me those words are hardly spoken since I never have time to bake. But that very moment in time something crazy came over me!
I baked, well sort of I used the frozen Marie Calender pie shells.
Of course washed and sliced all the strawberry's, and added the strawberry glaze.
And "LOOK" what I did, I made two pies. Oh yes I did. Gary was in shock, I called Mom and Dad and said stop by after Church I have a surprise for you. Mom was in suspense, when they arrived I opened the refrigerator door and said do you see something!... Mom was so happy! One pie for Mom and Dad and one pie for Me and Gary. Oh, I forgot one of the best parts to show you the whip cream of course.

Oh...how I love strawberries. You did a good thing, and made many tummies happy! I love your red round placements, those are so cute! Are they April Cornell by chance?

Elizabeth,
These look fantastic! I don't make crust either, but the refrigerated, not frozen, one's taste like homemade. You just put them in your pie plate and no one is the wiser!
Hugs,
Cathie

I can't wait till the strawberries are ripe this year. We still have a while to go. But, you have made me quite impatient.
