Do you remember when you were a kid and you’d walk into a restaurant and see all the pies in one of those carousels? The pies with the mile-high meringues or the ones with a crust so flaky you could hear it crumble? Which pie caught your eye? My gaze would almost always fall on the strawberry pie. Ruby red strawberries covered in glaze made my mouth water every time! Of course, whenever I ordered it I made sure it came with fluffy clouds of whipped cream because what’s strawberry pie without whipped cream? If you love strawberry pie, then this little gem is for you! I can almost guarantee it’ll take you back to those diner days when all you had to think about was which piece of pie you had to have right then!
