Strawberry Delight Creme Pie


(0 votes) 0 0

There is nothing more delightful in the summertime than fresh, plump, sweet, juicy red strawberries! Whether picked fresh, purchased from your local Farmer's Market or supermarket, they are truly a delight to enjoy! This recipe came about when I wanted to display the beautiful berries we had on hand and the wonderful creme filling I had created for it. I combined the two and came up with this beautiful pie.
