Gramma's Strawberry Pie

Janis McRae


Gramma handed down a lot of recipes! This is her favorite Strawberry Pie recipe. Momma found the hand-written recipe in a drawerful of recipes, all hand-written! I treasure this! I copied the recipe with all the misspellings and in her speech patterns! The notes in parentheses are mine for clarification.
