Assembling the Pie
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Place the pastry shell in a 9-inch pie plate.
- Pour the strawberry mixture into the pastry shell.
- Dot the top with butter.
- Cover with a top crust, and crimp the edges to seal.

- Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
Strawberry Pie is best served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. It can also be served cold, at room temperature, or even chilled. For a special treat, try serving it with a drizzle of melted chocolate.
