Grandma Lillie's Strawberry Shortcake

Actually, this is the easy (cheaters) version of Grandma Lillie's recipe.

1 frozen pie crust
1 pint strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 and 1/2

Slice strawberries and pour the sugar over them. Let set for about an hour to macerate. I'm not a chemist so I can't explain how it works, but I just know if you put sugar on strawberries it makes a lovely juice.

Meanwhile, bake the pie crust according to package directions.

Break the pie crust into chunks and put into the strawberries to soak up all those wonderful juices.

Pour some 1/2 and 1/2 over the top and enjoy. It's a much more rustic version of what people normally think of, but is so much yummier than a typical sponge cake shortcake.
