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

I made this for my husband with fresh picked strawberries. He absolutely loved it! This recipe doesn't have that bitter strawberry Jello in it so the showcase flavor is REAL strawberry! I'm such a fan of this recipe and I will make it again!

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

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.
