I wanted to update last year’s pumpkin pie recipe becasue it was a bit time-consuming and all with preparing irish moss and gingersnap cookies first. Pumpkin pie is my husband’s favorite and he speaks the truth about everything, so I knew he would be a good taste tester. I wasn’t expecting him to say it was the best he’s ever had, though. So I knew we had a winner with this version.

Mister and I have made a summer resolution to rise extra early and get out of the house. Our first day of practicing this resolution was to go strawberry picking as soon as the farm opened up. There’s only so much time left for these sweet summer babies. We froze some for smoothies, ate a whole bunch out of hand, and used the rest in this scrumptious pie. I love this no-bake filling because you taste the freshness of the just picked berries. It’s heavenly with coconut ice cream, which I made, but was not ready at camera time.
