No-Bake Fresh Strawberry Pie

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, June 25, 2012

This pie never lasts long.  I’ve served this a few times when we’ve had guests and I’m always left with an empty pie plate at the end of the evening.  Not such a bad thing, except that I’m always wanting another piece and it. just. isn’t. there.

This strawberry pie is ideal for summer because you don’t need to turn the oven on, it comes together in about 15 minutes and is light and delicious.   What more do you need?
