“My mom used to make this for our family back in '72. I totally loved it then as I do now! Very quick and easy to make. My mom used to make homemade crust but I always have trouble with mine and I recently found Keebler® ready made shortbread pie crusts!” - by buzzsau

As for the glaze, I didn't want it chunky so a used a hand held blender to puree the strawberries in the pan - it was still to chunky so I ran the sauce through a fine mesh sieve and the glaze was perfect and glossy. I will make this again - it is beautiful."
