Nothing tastes better on a warm summer day than a cool, frozen dessert. Mom’s Frozen Strawberry Pie brings back fond childhood memories of summer days spent playing outside all day. I loved coming home to enjoy a piece of mom’s delicious pie, a refreshing treat to beat the heat. This pie is a great treat for warm weather dinner parties, because it can be made up to 2 months ahead – another great trick mom taught me about cooking and entertaining.
