Summertime is on the way, and summer calls for an equally sunny dessert! Grammie's Fresh Strawberry Pie captures the classic taste of lazy summer afternoons and the feel of cool breezes on flowering meadows: the strawberries are bright, juicy, and sweet, layered within chilled, smooth strawberry gelatin. With a buttery, flaky crust, Grammie's Fresh Strawberry Pie tastes like a childhood adventure on a plate, especially when topped with whipped cream. It really is just like how Grandma used to make it!
