National Strawberry Cream Pie Day is an annual celebration with an amazing taste and aroma. In this pie, strawberries make up about 70% of the total weight of the treat. September 28 is a great excuse to forget about your diet and enjoy dessert.
Since we are talking about a dessert with strawberries, it is absolutely unclear why fall was chosen for the celebration, when it is very difficult to find fresh berries. However, today it is not difficult to find berries in grocery supermarkets; they are sold all year round. According to one version, the holiday was invented to remind us of summer.
- Garden strawberries were bred in the 18th century in the French province of Brittany.
- Today, more than 103 types of strawberries have been recorded; the berry is present in all US states, as well as in most countries.
- Garden strawberries received such a wide distribution due to their versatility, amazing aroma and taste. A variety of desserts, drinks, and sauces are prepared from it.
How to take part
Bake your own version of the pie; you can use whipped cream or cream cheese, pudding or custard base, and top it with strawberries. Berries can be in the cream or on top, decorating the cake. The best addition is sweet cream and fresh garden strawberries. If you do not have the time to bake, just buy a ready-made treat in a cafe. Eating a pie alone or with others is up to you.
