Recipe by Acerast
Strawberry Pie is a family favorite passed down from DH's grandmother, who was a pastor's wife in Texas. She and I made it together once, about 20 years ago, after spending the afternoon picking fresh strawberries. Now my daughter, her great-granddaughter, helps me make it during strawberry season. Always a treat!

A fabulous pie! I made this for a ZWT III challenge and lightened it up a little by using a prepared frozen pie crust. This reduced the calories from fat to 21%. I watched my BF practically inhale this pie not even looking up and barely taking a breath inbetween bites. It was just that good! Thanks for the recipe Acerast!
