Raw Strawberry Pie

SONY DSC

Dessert is not something I take lightly. My passion with food began as a baker. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I get when the first bite results in your eyes closing and rolling towards your brain while your taste buds do a gangnam like dance. If I ever open a cafe, this will certainly be on my menu. Couldn’t be happier with it. I really hope you are able to try this recipe over the summer. It is truly spectacular!
