Sometimes, it’s all about compromise.
Some people like fruit pies — apple, cherry, strawberry. And other people prefer cream pies — banana cream, coconut cream, custard.
This pie is a great compromise. I’ll start from the bottom layer:
- Graham cracker crust. (The pie I bought used a darker graham cracker crust, which was crunchy and not super sweet
- Thin layer of vanilla cream. (This is the same type of cream used in the banana cream pies)
- Thicker layer of strawberry cream. (Small bits of chopped strawberry).
- Top layer of sliced strawberries and whipped cream.
If you like Marie Callender’s fresh strawberry pie, you’ll probably like this one too. However, I found the slices of strawberries weren’t as satisfying as whole strawberries in the fresh pie.
For those of you who like cream pies, there’s plenty of cream here to satisfy.
Even better. Marie Callender’s is having a sale on the Strawberries ‘n Cream Pie. $10.99. Compare that to the 13.99 fresh strawberry pie.
One more thing to do. Marie Callender’s web site is having a poll to find the most popular pie. Banana cream is in the lead with 9% of the vote.
