This is another recipe that comes from my best friend -- who also put it in our church cookbook. It's the only way I ever make strawberry or peach/nectarine pie, because it's about as simple as it gets, especially if you have pre-made crusts on hand. I find if I use bought crusts, I can't quite get two pies out of this recipe, but I usually have leftover sauce. I use baby food jars and put some berries or peaches/nectarines on the bottom topped with the remaining sauce as a treat for my little girls. I sometimes add a layer of cream cheese to the pie, under the berries or peaches, for that little something extra -- and of course, don't skimp on the sweetened whipped cream on top! (According to my dad, whipping cream's not a garnish, it's just as important as the dessert itself!!) Cooking time is refrigeration time.
