Strawberry Pies

Luscious Strawberries, Sweet Glaze and Flaky Crust

Fresh. Ripe. Juicy.

Made a couple of flaky pie crusts:

Cooked up some strawberry glaze and made two very tasty fresh strawberry pies!

I also had some berries left over to use in my yogurt and smoothies. Next batch of strawberries will be used to make some homemade jam. Yum!
