Grandma's Strawberry Pie

 Grandma's Strawberry Pie
"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.”
