Shannon Chabes of Portage, Indiana wanted a lighter version of her grandma's classic summer pie. Our Test Kitchen came up with this one that offers all the flavor of the original but a fourth less fat and 152 fewer calories per slice. How sweet is that?
Strawberry pie is even more luscious when you cover it with a generous layer of amaretto cream. Keep the recipe in mind whenever you have a bounty of fresh berries. —Charis O'Connell, Mohnton, Pennsylvania
"This is one of the first recipes Grandma taught me to make,” recalls Shannon Chabes in Portage, Indiana. “All summer long, she makes these pies, substituting different seasonal fruits and gelatin flavors. But strawberry has always been the favorite-and it's even better topped with a dollop of whipped cream.”
Pretty enough for a party or shower, this yummy pink pie is covered with fluffy whipped topping and garnished with fresh strawberries. It is easy to prepare, too. Onieda Brummett of Wilber, Nebraska shared the delightful dessert.
My mother treated us to strawberry desserts each spring, and this was the one we always looked forward to. I tried making it with the chocolaty cookie crust and now make it that way all the time. It's a winner. —Judith Kapcsos
