Fresh Strawberry Pie With Almond Graham Crust

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This pie is simple but so good! Use fresh red ripe strawberries only for this recipe. Plan ahead the pie needs to chill for a minimum of 3 hours before serving. You can also make this in a 9-inch glass baking dish. Prep time includes chilling time, cooking time is for the crust.
