Strawberry season is one of my favorite times of the year – all of those lush, sweet berries beckoning to be picked.  Then once they have been picked, they need to be eaten, right?

At only 6 calories per large strawberry, I love to eat them au natural.  But when I want to share them with friends and family, I use them to create pies, top cakes, and make strawberry bread which are perfect for sharing.

This recipe for Strawberry Pie comes from the Georgia Church Suppers cookbook. The pie has four layers:  pie crust, sweetened cream cheese, strawberry goodness, and whipped cream.  What’s not to love?
