Easter Pie

Well, yesterday I was complaining about the snow and we had freezing rain this morning, but one of my blogging friends in Michigan ( Lisa from the Moonlit Stitch ) http://themoonlitstitch.blogspot.com
is bracing for about a nine inches of snow. Check out Lisa's blog; she has some wonderful bunnies and is working on a witchipoo doll. I know everyone here in Michigan is tired of the snow. Even another blogging friend Earlene commented on my blog stating that she got four inches of snow the other day...but it melted all away now. 

Now with Easter fast approaching, I am sure everyone who will be planning meals for this wonderful Spring Holiday has already made out their grocery lists and making sure everything is purchased for Sunday. Easter is the time that I have my entire family over...mom, brother/ SIL, sister/ BIL, my own children and grandchildren. Since my dad passed away, us siblings decided to each take a major holiday and cook the entire meal so that my mom would not have to do it anymore....but mom still makes the rolls and broccoli rice cheese casserole....no one can make those as good as mom...and we even have the recipes. LOL

For dessert this year, I have decided to make a strawberry pie. Now this strawberry pie comes from a pretty famous restaurant here in Michigan and in other states. Someone that I know worked at one of their franchises a long, long time ago, and the owner gave her the recipe. Without getting this person in trouble, they serve a pretty big double decker hamburger...

Here is the recipe for this chubby little pie....

1 qt strawberries
1 cup sugar
3 tbs cornstarch
One 9 inch pie shell baked
Whipped topping of your choice
(we prefer Ready Whip)

Place half of the whole berries in a baked pie shell. Mash remaining berries until juice flows freely in a bowl. Add sugar mixed with the cornstarch. Mix well. Place this mixture into a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook slowly stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Let cool. Spoon over uncooked berries in the pie shell. Chill thoroughly a few hours or overnight. Serve with your favorite whipped topping. 

This is such an easy pie recipe and may become one of your family's favorite too. Enjoy!

Prim blessings to all.
