My husband and I are grain and dairy farmers...and big fans of strawberries. The fruit I pick often ends up in this pie. The combination of the cool creamy berry filling and the delightfully different meringue crust guarantees you'll hear, "Pass the pie, please", all around the table.
Whenever my mom is invited to a party or potluck, everyone requests her homemade double-crust fruit pies. In the summer, she uses fresh, tart cherries for this recipe. I love a slice topped with vanilla ice cream. — Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio
I take this giant pie to almost every potluck. The crust is so easy, and we have lots of berries since they grow here on our small acreage. With a dessert this size, everyone can enjoy a luscious piece.

“In New Mexico, we love to make these yummy fried pies for dessert. Because they call for flour tortillas and convenient canned pie filling, they’re a snap to put together when time is short.” —Terry Dominguez, Silver City, New Mexico
