This Strawberry Pie has fresh strawberries mounded high in a rich, buttery crust. A little (or big) slice of delicious. The perfect summer dessert and my favorite strawberry pie!
Every summer, since Ellia turned one, we have had a big birthday bash to celebrate our kids! First it was just for Ellia, then for Ellia & Greta, and for the past two years it’s been for all three girls. We’ve had seven different themes, ranging from polka dots to zoo animals to butterflies to bumblebees to princesses to a backyard picnic and, most recently, a Red, White & Blue Garden Party. If we decide to do it again this year, it will be our eighth year in a row…..and…..we will have a brand new baby!
