Strawberry Custard Pies Recipe

Publisher Photo
These pies were a spring special at a restaurant where I used to work. Whoever was the cook that day had to bake them first thing in the morning and again in the afternoon, as soon as strawberries were ready. —Caroline Park, Pritchard, British Columbia

"I made one pie using the measurements listed in one of the reviews. I didn't care for the pudding in this recipe. I was hoping for more of a custard taste...maybe I would like it better w/ a creamcheese-type base."

MY REVIEW

"For Mothers Day, I made the full recipe for 6 pies. Wish I had made more. After giving to my 2 moms, I gave to 2 helpful neighbors and left 2 at home. Well each pie for home lasted a day each. Wish I had made more! :) Everyone loved these and my neighbor came over the other day and asked for the recipe. She ran to the store, came back to my house and we made 6 more!"
