Strawberry Pie is sweet and full of fresh picked berries. It is the perfect summer dessert. Serve with whipped cream, coconut cream, or chocolate shavings for added indulgence.

1/4 cup melted butter
In a bowl mix ingredients together until well combined. Fold into a pie pan and mold to edges of pan. Cool in refrigerator

3 drops red food coloring
1 1/2 quarts fresh strawberries
2 tbsp cold water
