So good it almost has angel's wings.

Just in time for Christmas!

Year after year, my family gathers together at my grandparent's house on Christmas morning for fellowship and remembrance. We all marvel at the Christmas village display my grandmother made out of ceramic that adds so much to the already fun atmosphere. My mother takes it upon herself to make this dish and please the masses that would attend. In the midst of pecan, chocolate, and lemon pies.....the strawberry pie is what makes our hearts beat the fastest.

There's nothing quite like a great time of fellowship among friends and family, singing, sharing stories, and enjoying good food. This particular pie, for me, is the sweet exclamation point on our time together. The funny thing is, we as a family all agree on one thing, the sweet pecan crust was what we look forward to the most!

So for me to share this recipe with you my friends, is for me to share good memories, great taste, and my reminiscing heart all in one.

Janis Leslie Evans from Washington, DC on May 09, 2013:

This is yummy and easy, a great combination. I will try this one, my husband will appreciate it. Voted up, useful, and awesome. Thanks for this one, Kasman.

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on April 23, 2013:

Thanks a lot au fait. This for me is about taste but it really is more about the memories it generates. Like you said, you remember this in connection with your sister growing up. You've grasped the concept exactly! Thanks for the votes and for stopping by!

This pie looks so delicious! My oldest sister used to make a strawberry pie when I was little and everyone loved it. You've got me thinking about it so I may just have to try this recipe this coming weekend! Gave you 5 more stars and voted up!

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on March 06, 2013:

It absolutely is and you'd love it like crazy! Thanks for the drop by and the comment Audrey!

Audrey Howitt from California on March 06, 2013:

This looks easy to make and delicious! Always a winning combo for me!

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 23, 2013:

Ahhhhh, well sorry to hear that JpCmc, I'm sure if you experiment a little bit you'll find something that works for you. I don't know what nuts are common in the Philippines, but perhaps even walnuts or almonds. I wouldn't mind trying that personally.

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 23, 2013:

Agreed Audrey, we have made it outside of the Christmas season before but I think think its tradition to make sure it's made around the Thanksgiving/Christmas time. Appreciate the comment!

JP Carlos from Quezon CIty, Phlippines on January 22, 2013:

Pecan is not so common here in the Philippines and I'm sure it will be quite expensive. But it won't be a strawberry and pecan pie without it.

Audrey from Arizona on January 22, 2013:

The pecan crust sounds great! This pie would be great for summer as well as Christmas.

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 22, 2013:

You could try a granola crust, even maybe a cookie crumb crust, like vanilla wafers, or even ginger snaps. I can't remember the alternative that we've made before and I don't have that particular part of the recipe around me at the moment. Is it nuts that you have an aversion to?

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 22, 2013:

We have had a different crust for it before I believe. I'll find out a decent alternative if I can my friend.....and I'll get back with you when I do.

JP Carlos from Quezon CIty, Phlippines on January 22, 2013:

I'm an apple pie person (yes, I voted apple pie in your poll) but I'm brave enough to explore other pies. I now it's strawberry and pecan pie, but what an alternative to pecans?

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 14, 2013:

My home state of Cali strawberries are really good too. I don't know that I've had any from Florida, but that may have to change with the next batch we make. Thanks for the suggestion and comment Rtalloni!

RTalloni on January 14, 2013:

You've reminded me that strawberries will be coming from Florida soon! Your pie recipe looks fabulous. :)

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 11, 2013:

I know, I had never had this kind of crust until I had this pie several years ago. You won't regret the wait, I promise! Thanks for the comment.

Kristin Trapp from Illinois on January 11, 2013:

Oh wow - this strawberry pie looks amazing! I have never heard of a crust made out of nuts before, sounds really good. I'll have to remember this recipe for June when strawberries are in season in my neck of the woods.

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 04, 2013:

Thanks a lot man. Most of the time, it ends up gone by the end of the day, lol.

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on January 04, 2013:

Just in time for Christmas or any other time of the year. Just lock-up what's left of the pie at night or it might get gone! Up n useful recipie, Kasman!

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 02, 2013:

Michelle Liew from Singapore on January 02, 2013:

Happy New Year, Kasman. Stopping in again to say that I gave this a vote!

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on January 01, 2013:

I know Thelma, it's hard not to want to reach through the screen! Happy new year to you!

Thelma Alberts from Germany on January 01, 2013:

I love strawberries! Can I have this pie now? It seems yummy and it makes me hungry at the moment. I´ll try this later. Thanks for sharing. Happy New Year 2013!

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on December 30, 2012:

This looks delicious. Thanks for sharing, Kas!!

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on December 24, 2012:

Thanks Tammy, it's almost heaven to me. This probably won't touch the goodness of the feasts I'll have there one day! Merry Christmas!

Tammy from North Carolina on December 24, 2012:

That looks like heaven. I LOVE strawberries! Very unique with great photos! Sharing and pinning.

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on December 23, 2012:

You won't be disappointed alocsin. Who knows, maybe it'll become a family favorite of yours too. It's definitely made for some great memories in my family and I pray it does for you as well.

Aurelio Locsin from Orange County, CA on December 23, 2012:

Anything with pecan is heaven to me, so I'm going to forward this delight to the family cook. Voting this Up and Useful.

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on December 19, 2012:

Hey Bill, you still like pecans though right? Scrape off the toppings and enjoy that crust, lol. I sometimes just want to dig right through all the toppings and get to that as fast as I can. It's definitely my favorite part! Thanks for the comment, much appreciation.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on December 19, 2012:

Well buddy, since I don't like strawberries I'm kind of left out in the cold with this recipe. My wife, however, will be all over this recipe, so you made one of us happy. LOL

Kas (author) from Bartlett, Tennessee on December 19, 2012:

Thanks. Funny thing is, my mother isn't the biggest lover of strawberry "anything", but man does she love this for the pecan crust! Appreciate the comment!

M Carnahan from Nevada on December 19, 2012:

Oh man!! That looks so good. I'm a fool for anything strawberry. Great hub, thanks!
