National Pie Day - January 23rd

Did you know that there is actually a National Pie Day! In honor of that day, I would love to see your favorite pie recipes this week. As a kid growing up this was always mine, Strawberry Bavarian Cream Pie. If you have a favorite recipe, email me at and I will place it right in this post. We can have a great list by the time the 23rd rolls around next Sunday.

Strawberry Bavarian Cream Pie Recipe

This chilled summer dessert looks as good as it tastes! It's an easy no-bake recipe that makes an elegant dessert.

  • 1 box strawberry flavor gelatin - 4 serving size
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 - 8 oz. container frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 pint strawberries - washed, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 baked 9" pie shell
  • extra strawberries for garnish (optional)

Preparation -
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the gelatin and sugar in the boiling water. Add the cold water, then place the mixture in the refrigerator to chill until thickened. Remove from the refrigerator and, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the thickened jello until it's about double in volume. Whisk in 1 cup of the thawed whipped topping. Place it back in the refrigerator and chill for about 1-1/2 to 2 more hours or until the mixture will mound easily. Place the sliced strawberries in the bottom of the baked pie shell. Spoon the whipped jello mixture over the berries in the pie shell. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Garnish with the remaining whipped topping and a few additional strawberries, if desired. Serve chilled. (
