This was my sweet mother-in-law’s strawberry pie recipe. Before Alzheimer’s took over, she was the BEST cook! I asked her once to show me how to make this pie, as it was her son’s favorite & has since become my recipe to take to all the family functions. She may no longer remember, but I do! Hope you all enjoy the recipe as much as we do!
