Mini Strawberry Pies Recipe

Summer is the season for berries and I LOVE berries!  Strawberries, raspberries, black berries, blueberries – you name it.  ALL berries are delicious in my book.  When I was growing up, we always had berries for dessert at my grandma’s house after summertime meals.  She would simply take washed berries, add some sugar to them and let them sit in the refrigerator for a bit to let them soften (or macerate them in cooking terms).  I still like to do the same thing and they are so yummy topped with a big squirt of Reddi-wip.

BUT, it’s also fun (and delicious) to use those summer berries in recipes.  This Mini Strawberry Pies Recipe is perfect for summer barbecues or just weeknight dinners.  It’s also pretty darn easy to make since it just uses store-bought pie crusts.

    Me and you both m’dear! I love berries too, but strawberries are my favorite by far. Sadly, the peak season has passed here but they are still available at a reasonable price. I love the idea of doing a mini pie! Would be great for cookouts and picnics!
