Mother's Day Dessert: Strawberry Pie Recipe

Pat Dana, Summer 1965  Isn't she the cutest?
If you've ever heard an interview or a lecture with me about my Zap the Grandma Gap books you know that I give my Mom all the credit for raising a Family History loving family.  Most of the ideas in my book either come from her or are inspired by her.   That's why I dedicated the book to my parents.  It is really written to honor them and the family legacy they taught me about. Mom and I just enjoyed a fun trip to the NERGC conference together (check it out on the Chart Chick blog.)

What you may not know is that my Mom is also an awesome cook.  When she went to college, she was really concerned about raising a good family, so she majored, and graduated in Home Economics.  I remember her telling me that they tested all different kinds of pie crust recipes in one of her foods classes to see what the best way to a flaky crust was.  So for Mother's Day this year, we created an infographic with Mom's excellent Strawberry Pie recipe.  She didn't like the Jello version, and she didn't like the cornstarch version, so she combined them together to make the perfect pie recipe. Please share a favorite recipe that belongs to your mother in the comments below!

We have our issues like any other family, but I'm super blessed with a great Mom.  Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
