Strawberry Pie



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


Easy Yogurt Pie

     Hello, I hope you all are doing well and in the mood for a yummy cream pie. Don't let the yogurt deter you from making this. My husband hates yogurt, he says it tastes like dirt to him, but he does like this pie. So when I make it at home I just say it's a cream pie and my family gobbles it up.

     Before you make it decide what flavor you want. I like strawberry banana yogurt, so this is what I use to make it.

  • 1 ready grahmcracker crust
  • 1 container of strawberry banana yogurt
  • 1 average size container of cool whip
  • 1 banana
  • a few fresh or frozen strawberries*
     Thaw the container of cool whip in your fridge till soft enough for mixing. Slice the banana and place slices on the bottom and sides of the crust. Using a bowl larger than the cool whip container, place the cool whip inside the bowl and stir in the yogurt. When done mixing pour into pie crust and top with the strawberries any way you want. Or you can cut the berries into small pieces and mix them right into the cool whip and yogurt  mixture. Place covered pie bake into fridge for at least a couple hours till it sets a bit more solid. Serves 6-8.

* Fresh strawberries look a lot prettier, but can be sour sometimes. Plus strawberries should be kept cold in a fridge but we all know that's not how the stores display them. Frozen strawberries get a little mushy when thawed but the taste is better.

     You can leave out the banana or you can make any flavor pie you want. Experiment and have fun with it!
