Strawberry Pie.....

The LRH had guests over for dinner this evening, and this recipe was highly requested. Not that I am a great cook....because I really am average. But, I know a good thing when I find it. The following pie recipe was one that I grew up with. My mother used to make it and it brings back fond memories. The crust recipe is so easy as well.

One of the great things about these recipes are the ingredients. All are food storage staples except the strawberries. It's easy to make and you will get rave reviews:

Whole Wheat Graham Cracker Pie Crust (Cherie Harmon, Cookin with Home Storage)½ C margarine
1 T brown sugar
1 C wheat flour
½ tsp salt
Mix all ingredients. Press mixture into the bottom of pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. This makes 1 pie shell.

Big Boy Strawberry Pie (Ann Marie Bridges)9 inch baked pie shell or graham cracker crust
In saucepan:
1 ½ C cold water
¾ C sugar
2 Tbs cornstarch
1 (3oz) package strawberry jello
2 quarts strawberries
--Bring to boil (water, sugar, cornstarch), stirring constantly. Boil until clear. Remove from heat. Add jello. Stir until smooth. Cool a little. Put cleaned strawberries in pie shell, filling a little over the top. Pour sauce over berries and refrigerate until it sets. Top with whipped cream. There will be extra juice left over.
Make the choice to prepare this definately will not regret it!
