Pentecost Pie


When thinking about what to make to celebrate our Church's birthday this Sunday, I didn't think long before I thought of this yummy, fresh strawberry pie. As we are (most of us) pie people in my house, I thought "pie" because my children usually request pie for their birthday dessert. And I thought "strawberry" because when sliced, strawberries look just like red flames, representing the tongues of fire that came down upon Our Lord's friends and the Blessed Mother. Layered over a bed of white chocolate whipped cream, this berry pie is so delicious and refreshing. It's not too filling, and even though it's perfect for Pentecost with sliced strawberries, I have a feeling it would be wonderful with any fresh berry on top.


RESTOUT, Jean II

I use a pre-made graham cracker crust for this recipe because the darling of the pie is most definitely the filling and the berries. You could certainly use a homemade graham cracker or even a regular baked and cooled pie crust instead.
