Strawberries are in in Florida, I love strawberries..Here is a yummy Strawberry Pie recipe

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting counter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 sticks cold butter, cut into small pieces
approximately 4 tbsp ice cold water, plus more as needed
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 (3 oz) package strawberry gelatin
3 tbsp cornstarch
2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

To make the crusts:  Combine flour, salt and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times to blend. You can also mix the dough by hand. Add the butter to the processor and pulse several times until it resembles coarse crumbs. Alternately, cut in the butter using a pastry blender. Add the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together and forms a ball.  You may need to add up to 4 additional tablespoons to get your dough to hold together, but be careful not to add too much.  Divide the dough into two equal pieces, flatten into disks, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for about an hour. 

Have a wonderful Spring;  I am trying to get back to blogging, be patient with me please.

Hello Mrs. Barbara,

My heart leaped with joy when I saw a new post from you on my reading list. I pray for you and your family every time I think of you.

Your strawberry pie looks heavenly. I love strawberry pie, but will have to wait until August to have some ... Strawberries are not ready until August up here on the Montana prairie. I like to make my strawberry pies in a homemade graham cracker crust using 1/2 regular graham and 1/2 cinnamon grahams. The subtle hint of cinnamon in the crust is always a surprise and a big hit.
