  2. Whip the heavy cream until peaks form then fold in the strawberries mixture. Pour into the crust.
    Freeze.
    An hour before serving put in the refrigerator.It will be perfect to cut.
    Now to make is very festive my mother would put sliced strawberries that have been macerated in liquor. 2 cups of slice strawberries for one cup of water 4 TBS of sugar and 1/3 cup of liquor.
