Meet the Cook: The first time I made this pie was during winter, using frozen berries. It was a hit even then. For a change of pace, I'm planning to make it with an Oreo cookie crust the next time. While our home's in Minnesota, my husband and I also farm in South Dakota. Luckily, we do love living in the country! We have five children, ranging in age from 22 to 7.

Each year we wait for "strawberry time" here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We believe our strawberries are the best in the country! After picking them at a nearby farm, I can't wait to get home to make this pie.
My grandparents grew a ton of stuff in their garden, including rhubarb and strawberries. We typically baked it into pies and cobblers, but then Mom found this recipe and it became a fresh, new favorite. —LeeAnn McCue, Charlotte, North Carolina
