When berries are so yummy on their own, it feels wrong to use them as an ingredient. Why add sugar, cream cheese, lemon juice, etc? Well, I was worried my strawberries would go bad. I suppose I could've frozen them for later, but I didn't.
And I'm glad because this pie is terrific. It's creamy, tart and sweet. It's also ridiculously simple to make, especially since I didn't bother putting the berries in the food processor, or slicing them/arranging them in a pretty pattern on top (my pie is a bit rustic!).
I had a slice of pie for my afternoon snack today. And another this evening. And perhaps I will have another slice for breakfast tomorrow. Perhaps. Thanks, Jer, for sharing your pie recipe.
