Fresh Strawberry Pie

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Doris1

I had tried various versions of strawberry which required cooking and mashing strawberries and cooking down until thickened or with gelatin. This recipe is so much simpler. Can have a pie ready in little no time. If in a hurry, I've also used a ready-made Shortbread pie crust.

This is just like my strawberry pie recipe I got from an old boyfriend's mother. Except I use a graham cracker crust instead of a regular pie shell. YaYa
