strawberry & cream pie
This is the recipe I use and love. Steve refers to it as strawberry crack. I made it Easter Sunday and have had it for breakfast (my name is Tania and I eat dessert for breakfast) and an early evening snack every day since. For a while there I deviated and for the whipped cream part tried to actually use heavy cream that was hand-whipped. But for once Cool Whip works better--the pie won't 'set' otherwise.
Note that this has raw eggs which some might not be cool with...I was lucky enough to be raised by a mama who made me zabaglione for dessert on a regular basis so none of us bat an eyelash at that sort of thing. I just make sure to buy good quality, fresh eggs--so far, so good.
