Soda Fountain Pie
Meet the Cook: The first time I made this pie was during winter, using frozen berries. It was a hit even then. For a change of pace, I'm planning to make it with an Oreo cookie crust the next time. While our home's in Minnesota, my husband and I also farm in South Dakota. Luckily, we do love living in the country! We have five children, ranging in age from 22 to 7. -Marsha Hanson, Ponsford, Minnesota
