Thanks to Twitter Pals @Vasilly and @ChrisBookaRama and @BooksandWine, I was reminded that today is National Pie Day according to the American Pie Council. and guess what!? I was taking a break from making a pie to check my blog and Twitter! Can you say ‘serendipity’?
This Chocolate -Strawberry Pie was loosely inspired by a pie from the movie Waitress. I first layered a chocolate pudding, then a mixture of whipped cream – marshmallow Fluff – cream cheese and a touch of Chambord and the top layer of sliced fresh strawberries. The berries taste so good, I didn’t want to cook them down into the traditional glazed strawberry concoction. It’s now in the fridge chillin’; awaiting its place as final course dessert to my husband’s sausage-escarole-white bean soup dinner.
FYI, March 14 is PI (Π) day and I will make a pie that day, too. We can also expect a pie on Pi Approximation Day, July 22. Read why here. 🙂
