Summer Fresh Strawberry Pie

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A spin on a favorite from Strawn's Eat Shop in Shreveport, Louisiana - best fresh fruit pies ever! Plan to share this strawberry pie - it's best within about 24 hours of making it - or put on your stretchy pants and eat the whole thing yourself. You may or may not be sorry."
