My mom found this recipe in a Betty Crocker cookbook - I don't know what year but I am guessing a 1960s edition or so. She made it often, especially for Sunday lunch.
I copied down her recipe years ago and cooked it yesterday for our lunch today.
Below is a photo of my recipe card- I had to make one change. Sliced and sweetened frozen strawberries, they used to come in a rectangle can- are not sold anywhere around here. So I used a pound box of fresh strawberries, chopped them in about 1/2 inch size pieces and added just 2 T of sugar. Then I stirred them into sugar free strawberry jello, as the recipe said to.
I used a 9 inch baked crust, instead of the called for 8 inch baked crust.
Today, it was topped with cool whip but it would of been even more delicious with real whipped cream.
Hope you all had a happy pleasant Mothers Day. Some of our children were here today for lunch. I made this pie and quiche. My husband grilled chicken and my daughter cooked homemade Mac and cheese and 7 layer dip with chips.
Strawberries are plentiful and low cost right now.
If you need a quick dessert, I recommend this retro Strawberry Minute Pie.
