Strawberries and Summer

While everyone else is thinking about #Fall. I'm over here still thinking about Summer. I love Summer; the sunshine and the hot temperatures.This Summer is going by so fast. Please tell Summer to wait for me, I haven't laid out on the beach yet, I haven't made any plans to go on a vacation, I haven't been out on the lake, I haven't spent enough time with my #family and friends, I haven't gotten a suntan, I haven't enjoyed the sunshine. So many things I have not had a chance to do this year. That #Coronavirus has really made a dent in my life and I'm sure it has wrecked havoc in yours too. To help me remember that Summer is still here, I have made a strawberry pie to celebrate the #Summer. I bought three pie shells, because I didn't have the time or the energy to make the pie shell. A #strawberry pie can taste just as delicious with a #Keebler's #graham pie crust. The Pie shells were 9 inch #pie shells and the recipe that I used called for 1 quart of strawberries. I bought 3 quarts, because I bought 3 pie shells. I had planned to make 3 strawberry pies. However, I used up all 3 quarts of strawberries for just one 9 inch pie shell and the recipe called for 3 tablespoons of #cornstarch which was not enough cornstarch for this pie. Using cornstarch helps to thicken the strawberry sauce. A strawberry pie should be firm and easy to slice through and it should look and jiggle like jello. I recommend doubling the cornstarch, add more water if you think the sauce needs more for this particular recipe. Check out the #recipe, it is a great tasting Strawberry Pie. You will love it!
