Let me start by saying I don’t normally eat pie. I don’t really like fruit (I know. I’ve heard it for 43 years from my Mom.) But there is something about it that just doesn’t appeal to me. So when someone serves pie for dessert I politely say no thank you. The only exceptions are Dutch Apple Pie (but only if it’s made by my Mom or myself) and this amazing Strawberry Cream Pie.
But I have to make this pie very stategically. See, if I make this pie at the beginning of strawberry season I will end up making at least 4 of them… and eating them all! Seriously! So I wait until the season is almost over before I make the first one. Then I devour it and wait patiently until next year when I can eat another one. If you’re wondering… “another one? She eats the entire pie herself?” The answer is a big, loud “HECK YES!”
So my kids and I went out to pick berries. I’ve only lived in the Pacific Northwest so I don’t know what berries are like in other places, but here they are plentiful! And the strawberries are devine!
* pie shell (pre-cooked)
* 1 package of vanilla pudding
* whipping cream
* a little sugar
* strawberry glaze (we buy ours in the grocery store in the produce section. I’m sure you can make your own but heck, that would be hard and take more time) =o)
