I made this pie for hubby for Valentine's Day (I know, I'm late getting to the photo)!
I wanted to make something rich and sublime, and centered on chocolate. The pint of fresh organic strawberries sitting in my fridge were also essential to any decadent creation I concocted. I didn't want to simmer, puree, or cook the strawberries in any fashion. Instead, I was inspired to tuck the fresh strawberries into a chocolate truffle cream pie...
so into the kitchen I went! After making this pie, I realized that a slice of pie was like eating chocolate dipped strawberries - but better, and with more chocolate! So, I honored it with the name of "Chocolate Dipped Strawberries" Pie! And, the pie turned out just as I had hoped - rich, chocolately, with bursts of fresh strawberries... entirely sublime.
This will be one of the new recipes you will have a chance to vote on - but I still have at least one more new recipe to showcase before I launch the vote... so stay with me!
