Mini Strawberry Pies ~ fresh strawberries in a delicious sweet glaze nestled in bite size golden, flaky pie shells. 

Many of us have a memory of food that takes us back to childhood. For my husband, it’s these Mini Strawberry Pies that his aunt brought him as a special treat from Sanders where she worked. 

They remind me of a mini version of mile high strawberry pie from Elias Brothers Big Boy’s restaurant where we spent many Friday night dinners when our girls were small.

Maybe you’ll find a piece of nostalgia in these pies, too. Or maybe you’ll make new memories with the first bite. Just 5 ingredients and a few minutes time ~ they couldn’t be simpler to make. You might say they’re easy as pie!

Strawberry Bread recipe ~ moist, lightly sweet bread loaded with fresh strawberries and topped with a simple cream cheese glaze.

This Strawberry Bread is a simple to make quick bread, meaning no yeast or kneading and it takes full advantage of the abundant crop of Florida strawberries coming north this time of year.

Keep the recipe on hand in early June too when bright red, sun-sweetened homegrown berries can’t be beat. Because the bread isn’t overly sweet, a thick slice is delicious with morning coffee and equally good for dessert in the evening. Bonus: it whips up in less than 10 minutes.
