My grandpa gave me many of my grandmother's and great-grandmother's recipes, including this one, along with may wonderful stories about them.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + freezing Bake: 20 min. YIELD:8-10 servings

- 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed

- 1. In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Place in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown; cool on a wire rack. Set aside 1/3 cup for topping; sprinkle remaining nut mixture into a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. dish.

Continue beating on low speed until mixture reaches 160°. Pour into a large bowl. Add strawberries, lemon juice and remaining sugar; beat on high for 8 minutes or until light and fluffy.
