Strawberry Pie

Hello everyone, springtime means strawberry time. I use to live in Charleston, South Carolina where I would go down to Boone Hall Plantation and pick my own fresh strawberries every year. This would make a fun activity for the kids to get involved in. Kids love picking  fresh fruit and vegetables. You just can’t beat fresh strawberries. They are so sweet, they just melt in your mouth.  I would then go home and make this super easy Strawberry Pie. I know your family is going to thank you.
