Easy strawberry pie recipe
There really are only a few ingredients to create this summer treat.  Sugar, strawberries and a little thickener for the filling, and a frozen pie crust.  That is pretty much it.

First you want to put together the berries, sugar, vanilla and corn starch and set it aside.  Then roll out the frozen pie crust and cut it out with a heart or round cutter.  I love the little scalloped edge on my cutter.
