    Fresh Strawberry Muffins

    2 cups sifted flour 4 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt 2 Tbsp sugar 1 egg, well beaten 1 cup milk 4
    Tbsp. shortening, melted
    2/2 cup sliced strawberries

    Stir the dry ingredients together; add milk, egg and
    shortening. Stir in strawberries. Do not overmix! Bake in
    well-greased muffin pan at 400'F for 20-25 minutes. (When
    using frozen berries, drain juice and add to milk to make 1
    cup of liquid.)

    Strawberry Vanilla Bread

    1 cup corn oil
    3/4 cup sugar
    3 (1 1/2 02.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding 6 eggs 4 1/2
    cups flour
    4/2 Tbsp. baking soda 1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder 4 cups
    frozen strawberries, thawed (reserve juice)

    In mixer bowl combine sugar, corn oil and vanilla pudding.
    Blend on medium speed, add eggs on low speed. Then mix on
    medium speed until mixture is creamy. Combine dry
    ingredients and add 1 cup at a time on low speed, mixing
    thoroughly. Add strawberries and 3/4 cup juice; mix well.
    Pour into loaf pans; bake at 350'F for 50-60 minutes.

    Strawberry Pie

    1 cup sugar 1 cup water 6 tsp. cornstarch 3 oz. strawberry
    Jell-O 1 pint to 1 quart washed and hulled strawberries 1
    9-inch baked and cooled pie shell

    Bring sugar, water and cornstarch to a boil over medium high
    heat. Add Jell-O, stir until dissolved. Cool and then add
    strawberries. Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until it
    starts to congeal. Put in pie shell and cool completely. Top
    with whipped cream or ice cream to serve. (Very good in Cream-
    Cheese Pie Crust)

    Cream-Cheese Pie Crust (one 9-inch pie shell)

    1 cup flour
    5/2 teaspoon salt
    6/3 cup vegetable shortening
    7/2 cup cream cheese 2 tablespoons water

    Preheat the oven to 425'F if you are baking the pie shell.
    Combine the flour and salt in a mixing bowl and stir with a
    fork to mix, or put into the food processor. Add the
    shortening and cream cheese, and cut them into the flour
    until the mixture looks like small pebbles or coarse sand -
    it will be irregular, and some pieces will be larger than
    others - or process with "pulses,"' quick on and off.
    Sprinkle the water evenly over the mixture, a little at a
    time, stirring with a fork or with "pulses" after each
    addition to distribute the water evenly. Depending on the
    moisture in the cream cheese, the dough might not need all
    of the second tablespoon. If it feels quite soft (but not
    sticky), and holds together in a rough ball, it is ready to
    roll out. Shape it into a cake about 1 inch thick. Dust your
    rolling surface and rolling pin with flour, and roll the
    dough into a circle about 1/2 inch thick and at least 2
    inches larger than the inverted pie pan. Transfer the dough
    to the pie pan, trim and crimp the edges, and the pie shell
    is ready to he filled before baking, or to be partially
    baked or fully baked. To bake the pie shell; Prick the dough
    all over with a fork at 1/2-inch intervals. Press a 12-inch
    square of heavy-duty foil snugly into the pie shell. Bake
    for 6 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 4 minutes
    more if you want a partially baked shell. If the dough
    begins to puff or swell, push it down with the tines of a
    fork. If you want a fully baked shell, bake for 8 to 10
    minutes more, or until it is lightly browned.
