For my mother's 70th birthday and Mother's Day, I made two of these strawberry pies instead of a cake. Since it was mid-May in Texas, the berries were absolutely perfect. It was a memorable occasion for the whole family.

This pie is an old-fashioned dessert. I sometimes top warm slices with a sprinkling of cinnamon or nutmeg. Best of all, it's easy to assemble when dinner-time is fast approaching.—Virgina M Krites, Cridersville, Ohio
This is my own recipe for a pie that I make often. It's been a family-favorite dessert since the '40s, when I made several of these pies to serve a threshing crew of 21 men! —Vera Moffitt, Oskaloosa, Kansas
This quick pie is such an ego booster. My family compliments me the entire time they’re eating it. A big hit at work potlucks, too, it’s good to the last crumb. I promise you it’ll ‘hop’ right off the plate! —Kim Murphy, Albia, Iowa
I got this recipe while living in Utah. Now I always use Utah peaches to make this delicious, creamy dessert-they're the best ones that I've ever tasted, and they certainly represent our region of the country.
"This recipe was given to me by a friend many years ago while we were attending a weight-loss class," writes Gale Spross from Wills Point, Texas. "I always feel guilt-free when I eat this tight and fluffy strawberry pie...and my family loves it."
