1970's French Strawberry Pie

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"My mom used to make this for our family back in '72. I totally loved it then as I do now! Very quick and easy to make. My mom used to make homemade crust but I always have trouble with mine and I recently found Keebler® ready made shortbread pie crusts!"
