Meet the Cook: Whether I've served this pie at family meals or club luncheons, I have never met a person who didn't enjoy it. It is easy to prepare, tasty and very pretty. I'm a widow with six married children and 20 grandchildren. -Florence Robinson, Lenox, Iowa

MY REVIEW

"I like to make strawberry pie in the spring using fresh berries from our patch. This is one of my husband's favorites. Sometimes I use a baked prepared pie crust. Don't use berries that are very juicy or the pie may not set as well."

"Delicious. My husband ate the pie within 2 days. He said it was the best Pie I had ever cooked. My Strawberry Pie normally has too much Jello and taste like you're eating Jello with Strawberries. Maybe. the Karo Syrup made the pie more creamy . I don't know but I will be keeping the recipe."
