Fresh Strawberries & Cream Pie! This easy pie is filled with a homemade cream filling and delicious glazed fresh strawberries!

I often post pie recipes because pie is generally pretty easy to make and something my family really enjoys!  I like pie but now that I’ve met this pie, I LOVE pie!

This amazing pie has a crust filled with a homemade cream filling that has been kissed with fresh lemon and then is topped with luscious fresh strawberries.  Not only is it gorgeous, but it is seriously delicious!  My family completely devoured this!

Keep in mind the recipe below makes 2 pies, which is perfect because these will not last long!
