Strawn's Strawberry Pie

On a recent road trip from Dallas to the border town of Shreveport, Louisiana, I had the opportunity to sample a strawberry pie. Strawn's Eat Shop has been serving hamburgers, fried chicken, and fresh ice-box strawberry pies since 1944.

I had never experienced a strawberry pie, and was expecting something syrupy and mushy. But the strawberries were fresh, flavorful and firm. The heavy topping of homemade whipped cream made the pie double dang good.
