Best Fresh Strawberry Pie

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

I make this in the summer when the berries are fresh and juicy. I have tried many strawberry pie recipes but this one is the best imo. Chill time is 4 hours.

Really good. I did follow it except for the direction to put the largest berries in the shell and use the rest for the glaze. The smaller berries are the most flavorful so I used them for the raw berries.
