Strawberry Picking and Strawberry Pie!

The kids have been asking daily since we got home from Maryland when we would go strawberry picking so yesterday, after church, we finally went. We are lucky to have a great strawberry patch just ten minutes from out house so once strawberry seasons hits, we usually go once a week until the season is over or until we can't stand to eat another strawberry!

Strawberry Pie is always the first thing I make with our first picking. Everybody loves it, even Micah who does not like strawberries!
Strawberry Pie (makes 2)

Two Refrigerated Pie Crusts
2 Cups 7-up
2 TBSP Cornstarch
1, 3 oz Package of Strawberry Jello
8 Cups Fresh Strawberries, Cleaned and Trimmed
Whipped Cream to Serve

Bring cornstarch and 7-up to a boil, simmer until thickened.
Add Jello, stir until dissolved, cool.

Bake pie crusts according to directions, cool.

Place strawberries in pie crust.
Pour cooled sauce over strawberries.
Refrigerate until ready to eat, at least 2 hours.

Top with whipped cream and eat!
