This recipe was such a find , thank you for posting it. I first tasted Bob's Big Boy strawberry pie in 1965, outside Jacksonville, Illinois on the way home from college. The memory has lived on and was revisited by this wonderful recipe. I served it as dessert this Easter and my brother declared it to be the best pie he ever ate. Exactly how I felt in 1965. I followed the recipe to the letter ( except leaving the berries in thick slices,or whole as I remembered) and it turned out perfectly. This will be a go to recipe from now on.
