Refreshing & Delicious Strawberry Cream Pie

   



     This is an easy recipe that turns into a very refreshing & delicious strawberry cream pie!  So simple to make that even the most inexperienced baker can do it.  It’s a perfect summertime treat that is perfect for picnics and barbecues.

 


  • 1 pkg. (24 oz.) frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed
  • 1 pkg. shortbread pie crust
  • 1 ¼ c. whipping cream
  • ¼ c. powdered sugar
  • ¼ c. cornstarch

In a medium saucepan, stir together the strawberries and the cornstarch.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to boil and then cook for 2 full minutes longer.  Remove from heat.

Allow the strawberries to cool for about 15 minutes and then pour into the pie crust.  Place the pie into the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.  Place a medium sized mixing bowl and beaters into the refrigerator also so they can cool. 

After 2 hours, beat together the whipping cream and the powdered sugar together in the chilled mixing bowl.  Beat until the mixture forms stiff peaks.  Spread over the chilled pie.  Cut, serve and enjoy!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned Potato Wedges

    These homemade crispy seasoned potato wedges turn out golden brown on the outside and flaky and tender on the inside.  This is a family favorite and we often serve these in place of homemade French fries or homemade fried potatoes.  Since they are baked, they are a healthier alternative. Serve them with ketchup or in garlic aioli.

 


  • 4-6 lg. baking potatoes (about 2 lbs.), peeled and cut into wedges
  • ¼ c. olive oil
  • ¼ c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • Pinch of onion powder

 


Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. 

 Place your cut wedges into a gallon sized baggie.  Add in the oil and shake the bag to get all the wedges coated.  Once they are well coated, place the wedges, in a single layer, onto a baking sheet.  Sprinkle the wedges with Parmesan cheese, seasoning salt, rosemary, pepper and the pinch of onion powder.

 Bake for about 35 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender and golden brown.

 


I serve these crispy seasoned potato wedges with hamburgers.

 


They also go lovely with a steak.

 


Some other ways to use potatoes include:

·        Loaded Cheesy Tater Tots

·        Crock pot Scalloped Potatoes

·        Parmesan Ranch Potatoes

·        CreamyPotato Casserole
