Strawberry Fields

With Valentine's Day coming up, I knew that I wanted the theme of this month's pie to be red. I had considered chocolate but ultimately decided not to because of the S'mores pie I had made just last month. 
Because Puxatony Phil came out to play a couple of weeks ago without seeing his shadow, spring was promised to arrive early. It seems to have reached us here. At springtime in the central valley, especially where I live, you can't throw a stone without hitting a roadside vendor peddling their wares. On Sunday, returning from my walk with my dad and the dogs I noticed that strawberries had made their debut. After a quick shower, I headed out to the corner and bought half a flat for the bargain price of $10. I had something in mind for them when I brought them home. 
This month's pie is Strawberry Raspberry Pie. Oh yeah, did I tell you that I was going to make it extra special by making pie in a jar? Oh? No? Well, here it is. 
The jars I had in my house make this pie extra special because they were large enough to perfectly hold a pie that was just the right size for two. How romantic! 
Gather supplies...mix up some berries, a little sugar, a little flour and a dash of lemon juice...
...fill up the jars and make sure to add a pat of butter to each...
...prep the tops. 
Make sure to cut out holes to vent, I used a little heart for the occasion....
...seal em' up to give as gifts or....
...bake one up for you and your valentine. 

If you want to save them, they freeze well. Keep some in the freezer and take one out when needing that little something sweet.
