Dear SOS: While on vacation in Cape Cod recently, I told someone about the wonders of fresh strawberry pie and promised to get her a recipe. Marie Callender’s makes wonderful strawberry pie, but they don’t give out the recipe. Can you offer an alternative?

Dear Connie: You’ve gotten yourself into a bit of a fix, haven’t you? Traveling the country and making promises brought to mind the Congressional Club Cookbook. This recipe is from Sara Mathews, wife of former Rep. D.R. “Billy” Mathews from Florida (the other strawberry state). The pie crust is from the July 15, 1998 Food section.
