Fresh Strawberry Pie

I remember standing on a stool and watching my mother pour the syrup over the fresh strawberries in the baked pie shell, and then waiting until the pie was chilled before we could have a slice.  This Fresh Strawberry Pie recipe has been in our family ever since I was a little girl and is still a favorite today. When our family knows that the Fresh Strawberry Pie is coming you want to get in line fast to get your slice before it is all gone.  I just love sharing these old recipes with all of you and hope you enjoy this special Fresh Strawberry Pie.

    1. Diane,
      This is the pie crust that I like to use more than any of the others. It is real flaky and works really well. It is on my Granny Apple Pie Recipe.

  2. Strawberry Pie is one of my absolute favorites and if you ever get this far east Miz Helen, do try Dudley's in Longview for strawberry pie. It is INCREDIBLE!
    :) Thanks for sharing this recipe.
