Caker Sharing is Caker Caring

Am I paranoid, or is it weird to see Ontario strawberries in August? The way I remember it, there used to be a two-week strawberry season at the end of June. After that, you were SOL and left with those flavourless, heart-sized hollow things from California.

Anyway, I was recently contacted by Caker Cooking reader (and book publicist extraordinaire), Adria, about Frozen Fluffy Strawberry Pie. In her own words:

"Nothing brings back childhood summers more than the sweet smell of strawberries and condensed milk. Mum fancied herself a pie expert, famous for her apple pie with perfect Crisco-aided crusts. But the thought of turning on the oven in July after she’d picked Grandma’s berry bushes clean had her wincing. Frozen Fluffy Strawberry Pie to the rescue. Not for the lactose intolerant, this recipe brings together cream cheese, whipping cream, butter and condensed milk. Add that to some strawberries and coconut and you can basically rename it (Virgin) Strawberry Daiquiri Pie."

I don't know about you, but I don't consider anything with "virgin" in the name a selling feature. However, I'm sure this pie is delicious. Here's the recipe.

Thanks, Adria!
