What I Made for Dessert :: Strawberries & Cream Pie
My parents bought an insane amount of strawberries (8 pounds for $3.99!) and shared half of them with me. Since fresh strawberry pie is my favorite pie since I was a little girl, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at baking.
I wanted to have a layer of custard under the strawberries, but what I ended up with is more like a custardy cream ... i.e., it's messy! I used the recipe from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything (the yellow version) and it was super easy. Maya LOVED it and asked, "Can we just have a cream pie?"
