Happy last full day of school definitely calls for a celebration, how about a Chocolate Crust Strawberry Pie?

It is after all, strawberry season too with lots of farms around the region offering all sorts of family friendly activities to go along with the annual ‘PYO’ tradition.

The first time around we picked these gorgeous strawberries at a farm ten minutes away, actually, sort of on the fly, rather then making a day of it, due to persistent intermittent rains. A giant burst of warm sunshine late day one weekend afternoon enabled at least one fun fresh air activity… then yielding… way too many strawberries between a household of eager participants.

Despite the rains, the mud was sort of minimal on the floors of my car that I just had thoroughly cleaned, including all the bells and whistles. Sigh. Well not as much as the chocolate crust lining the pie plate anyway.

Lots of cups crushed in between the pounds provided for strawberry sauce, strawberry jam, strawberry shortcake, and today’s recipe, old fashioned style, straight from Betty Crocker herself, well, except with the chocolate crust switched in, for we all know what a romantic match strawberries are with chocolate. I also exchanged a tablespoon of water for a touch of Amaretto. Why not? Enjoy the pie, and, the celebration. Yahoo! if you too are marking the last full day of school!
