U-PICK Strawberry Whip Pie

I first tried this very simple pie to celebrate my Granddaughter’s 18th Birthday. She loves strawberries!! I have seen her plow through a big box of them all by herself much to her brother’s dismay when he came back from playing video games. I grew up with fresh ripe strawberries. The only way my Mom could afford to get us fresh strawberries was to take us out to the “U-Pick” fields and my brother and I would eat as many as went into our bucket. There is nothing sweeter or more wonderful than a fresh ripe strawberry on a summer day except maybe this pie. If its summer and there are U-PICK fields near you grab your kids or grandkids or both and go pick some berries for this pie. If not, be sure to get locally grown berries at you local farmers market so that you know they haven’t travelled too far to be part of your pie.
