I can't remember where my wife found this recipe, but it's been a crowd favorite everywhere we've taken it. We even made a reduced sugar version with Splenda instead of sugar.

I believe she may have gotten this from the Taste of Home magazine or Annual from 1994. I have used this exact recipe for 20 years now and it literally is the best Strawberrry Pie.
