Easy Strawberry Pie (for Pi Day)
Happy Pi Day and Happy first day of March Break. This morning, the kids and I made a strawberry pie before we remembered that it was Pi day. Pretty cool!!!
We used this lime chiffon pie recipe which we love and have made many times. We were out of limes but had strawberries and strawberry Jell-o, so we decided to change the flavour. I usually use a pie plate for my pies but when you have two kids competing to stir and pour, corningware seems like a safer (cleaner) option.
This recipe requires about 4 hours of chilling.
But since the kids aren't too picky, we chilled it for 2 hours and then dug right in.
We used chocolate cookie crumbs instead of graham crackers. I almost went into sugar shock when eating it, but the kids said it was "delicious"!
As for me, I was happy with my piece because it tasted like spring.
What a nice start to March Break!
