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 REVIEW

This pie is so easy and absolutely delicious! Tastes like strawberry shortcake in a pie. Don't forget the homemade whipped cream and to make it extra special, drizzle it with a little melted dark chocolate!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2010

This is a good pie recipe. I served this for company, and everyone thought it was great. We don't like sugary desserts, so for the middle layer, I cut the sugar down to just above 1/2 cup, and increased the strawberries. Also, we don't eat gelatin, so it was great to find a recipe that does not call for it. I'll definitely make this again.
