Once the pie is cooled, create the pretty strawberry center! To create the strawberry pattern in the middle of the pie, slice strawberries thinly. Start with the outer layer and move towards the middle of the pie until you reach the center.

The sliced strawberries add so much flavor and make it taste just like a strawberry lemonade pie!
