Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Pie
Fact: I am having the worst time with pastry these days. I don’t know if it’s the dry winter air or what but everything’s falling apart on me.
Another fact: This pie is not going to cut nicely for you. But no one will care because it’s delicious.
One more fact: I really intended to have a week of Mardi Gras food but I dropped the moonpie on that one. Get it?! No? Moving on…
I took all my kids to Costco last week. Always a bad idea. Not as bad as taking all the kids AND the husband but still a bad idea. We ended up with 4 pounds of strawberries in our cart and even though they love strawberries, they just couldn’t eat them quickly enough. So I made a pie. Because there is never a bad time for pie!
I wasn’t going to post this pie because I was so disappointed that it didn’t cut smoothly but then my husband went absolutely nuts over it. The man loves strawberries but I definitely didn’t expect this pie to get such a strong reaction out of him. I swear he ate half of it in one sitting and then talked about it for a week after that.
It’s an easy pie too. You bake the pie crust alone and then you just have to refrigerate it once the filling is in. It took no time at all and the hardest part was waiting for it to chill!
And that lovely pink color? All strawberries! No food coloring needed. :)
