It's Another Pie!

The April issue of Southern Living finally arrived and we tore through it, looking for the next big thing. My vote was for Strawberry Cream Pie, and the Piemaker wanted to make Strawberry Mousse Cake. Guess who won?

Isn’t it gorgeous? This is a simple no-bake pie with a cream-custard filling in a chocolate cookie crust. The strawberries are just sliced and placed on the top.

The Piemaker added a little bit of genuine Southern flavor by replacing the currant jelly called for in the recipe with some mayhaw jelly from his friends in New Orleans. Mayhaws are berries that grow in swamps in most of the Southern U.S.

VERY good pie: there are not many things in this world better than chocolate, strawberries, and cream!
Do you have any favorite strawberry recipes?


  1. Dee-licious!
    I've not heard of mayhaws - must google them.

    Hard to beat a strawberry tart.

  2. Looks delicious! I also received my April copy and now after reading your post I am going to try to make the pie. Yummy!

  3. That looks delicious!

    We eat a lot of strawberries here; I like them by themselves and stirred into yogurt. Bob likes his covered with whipped cream or powdered sugar; he has a real sweet tooth!

    My all time favorite strawberry dessert is strawberry rhubarb pie, but I can't even remember the last time I had it. I'm craving it now though!
