National Strawberry Cream Pie Day

Strawberry cream pie is a dish that’s made in much the same way as strawberry pie, but it uses pudding, custard, cream cheese, or whipped cream to make it light and fluffy. It’s the perfect summer dish but can be made all year round thanks to the ready availability of canned and frozen strawberries.

Anyone who wants to make one of these pies doesn’t really need an excuse, but we’ll give them one anyway. The excuse to make one of these pies is to celebrate National Strawberry Cream Pie Day on September 28th. On this day, you can make as many strawberry cream pies as you want, and no one will judge you for it.
