    Your New Favorite Strawberry Pie Recipe

    One of my favorite fruits of summer is strawberries! I remember eating them as a child on our front porch, dipping each bite in sugar & the smaller the strawberry, the better the strawberry to sugar ratio. My thinking hasn’t changed much, as you can see I made individual portions of strawberry pie.

    Decadent Fresh Strawberry Pie

    My love for making pie began in the weeks I would spend with my grandma in the country. There wasn’t a lot to do, so we’d take a day & make several pies to gift, freeze & enjoy. Her philosophy was “you can never have too many pies.”

    If she was invited to dinner on a whim, she could still come prepared, despite being an hour away from a grocery store. You can easily freeze this pie in the miniature portion for an individualized treat all summer long!

    How to Make A Homemade Strawberry Pie

    Making your own filling is simple – just start with the freshest berries possible! In 10 minutes, you’ll have strawberry pie filling no can could compare with.
