June is made for strawberries!

we enjoyed our time strawberry picking last week, but we ate all the strawberries before i could get Korlissa's recipe and make the pie!

so this morning, after garden chores, the little girls and i went strawberry picking locally. i wanted to try out that particular strawberry patch, and get enough berries to make this pie for dessert. (note to self: do not go picking there again next year~ too weedy, too sparse, too expensive and the berries are not that nice)

Korlissa's Strawberry Pie

Mix: 1 cup sugar
4 T clear gel

Add: 1 1/4 cup water
1 T lemon juice
red food coloring
1 QT strawberries

pour into graham cracker crust. refrigerate until set. can top/garnish with cool whip

one of the reasons that i was so excited to get this recipe is that Korlissa told me that it works well with frozen strawberries. since we can only have Aunt Velma's Strawberry Pie a few times in June, i was eager to try this recipe out.

my pies are made and setting up in the refrigerator as i type, so I'll have to let you know how they taste after dinner. but if they taste as good as they look, everything will be just fine!
