NATIONAL STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE DAY | SEPTEMBER 28
Each year on September 28 strawberry lovers get to enjoy their favorite fruit in the form of pie on National Strawberry Cream Pie Day.
Even though strawberries are out of season, the grocers always make sure to stock up on frozen and canned so we can make pies. How else do we keep making fruit pies all year long? Those of us who planned ahead preserved strawberries just for this occasion. And of course, some fresh ones are still available here and there.
When is National Apple Pie Day?
Strawberry cream pie can be made in many different ways. Some recipes use a custard or pudding base with strawberries either folded in or on top. Others are made with cream cheese or whipped cream. Whichever you prefer, the strawberry cream pie is a delicious treat.
