September 28th is National Strawberry Cream Pie Day, and we’ve got an easy, yummy recipe for you below (there’s also a National Strawberries & Cream Day on May 21st).
A cream pie is a plain pastry or crumb pastry shell with a pudding or pudding-like filling.
Butterscotch, chocolate, frangipane and vanilla are most common, as are banana cream pie, coconut cream pie, strawberry or raspberry cream pie.
What’s the difference between cream pie and creme pie?
Just the spelling.
Creme is an Americanization of the French word for cream, crème (pronounced KREHM), most likely adapted in the U.S. to make the dish sound more special.
But why mispronounce another language’s word for cream? Unless it’s a French recipe, such as Coeur à la Crème, stick to “cream.”
And celebrate the day by making this delicious strawberry cream pie recipe, courtesy of the California Milk Advisory Board.
You can substitute your berry of choice: blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, etc.

RECIPE: STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE
Ingredients For 8 Servings
For The Crust
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 cups milk
4 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (substitute almond extract, if desired)
3/4 cup sour cream
2 cups strawberries, washed and sliced
For The Filling
1. PREHEAT the oven to 350°F.
2. MIX the flour and powdered sugar together. Add the butter. Mix together and press the mixture into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned then let cool.
3. COMBINE the sugar, salt and cornstarch in medium size saucepan. Slowly whisk in the milk until smooth. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, then remove from the heat.
4. STIR a small amount of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks. Pour it back into the pan and cook for 2 minutes more, without letting the mixture boil. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla; fold in sour cream. Cover and cool to lukewarm.
5. LINE the pie shell with the sliced strawberries and pour the filling over the berries. Chill well before cutting into wedges. Makes 8 servings.
