31 Days of Decadent Desserts {Day 3} Strawberry Pie

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. I love eating bowls of strawberries, strawberry shortcakes, and strawberry pie. When I saw a pin on pinterest for strawberry pie I repinned it. Pretty soon after that I got the chance to make it. It was just as good as the picture looked.

I love strawberries, though you know not everyone in my house does. I'm going to pin this anyway. I bet the rest of us can finish it off by ourselves. :-)

I love strawberries, too.

I enjoy peeking in on your dessert making :)

If you like peanut butter at all I highly recommend this peanut butter frosting. I made it for Jonathan's birthday cake and everyone loved it. I even caught guests sneaking some of the extra frosting straight out of the fridge :)

The frosting is a little soft at first but once you spread the frosting it sets up nicely in the fridge.
