Well this dessert is going to rock your socks! Simple enough to whip up the morning before your barbecue, yet delicious enough to make everyone go back for seconds. I recently made this fresh strawberry pie for some neighbors we had over for dessert. Their cute little boy ate it up and kept asking for more. Licking his lips he said, "Oh this is good!
