Strawberry Pie

Summer arrived on Friday and so did strawberry season in Michigan. At Friday’s local farmers market I bought a flat (8 quarts) of strawberries and after eating just about half of them I decided to make some sweet treats with it. First on the list was strawberry pie… a classic favorite.
