Now that the strawberries are available here is a delicious fresh strawberry pie recipe. This recipe is my husband and my mothers favorite recipe and is is a scrumptious way to enjoy fresh strawberries when they are here. This recipe makes two 9 inch pies.
You can put the whipped topping on as soon as the pies have chilled but I prefer adding it to each serving as needed because whipped topping doesn’t hold up well in a fridge on this pie. If you like this pie and would like to make a fresh raspberry pie just replace the berries with raspberries and the jello with raspberry flavor jello.
