It's been a while since I've shared a recipe out of my mother's magic recipe box, so I thought I'd share something that I've made a few times since strawberries have been in season here in Texas. This is a simple recipe and is unbelievably delicious. Here's the recipe:
And here's the blow by blow:
|Put the 1 1/2 pints of strawberries in a pot and mash.|
|I've used store bought pie crust and home made.|
For either one, get it in the oven now,
so it will be cool by the time you need to put the filling in.
|This is how it should look when it is thickened enough.|
|Add the rest of the strawberries, the almond extract and the lemon juice and stir.|
Let this mixture hang out until it is cooled to room temperature.
|Your pie crust should be finished and cooled by now.|
|When you serve it, just add a big spoonful of whipped cream on top,|
and there you have it!
|You might end up licking the plate clean.|
