This might be one of my favorite pies yet! It’s very easy to make and perfect for summer. I wasn’t sure if I would be a fan of the honey on the strawberries but I went for it and it was delicious!

Oh man, this was DELICIOUS. Using good strawberries is key, bc they’re such as essential part of this pie. It’s not a very sweet pie, but I prefer that. Everyone in my home loved it and devoured it. I imagine the custard base would be delicious topped with mangos too.

This was as delicious!!! My family enjoyed it and asked for seconds. It is the perfect desert for hot weather. I cut and sugared the strawberries and added extra to each slice then topped with whipped cream. The custard was easy to make the and pie crust was excellent. I will make this one again.

Can't believe no one has commented on this recipe. I've actually been making this for years, and it's fantastic. I use my own pie crust recipe (when you have one that works, why mess with anything else?), but otherwise follow the recipe. It's a great pastry cream, and the strawberries glazed with honey on top are so simple and perfect. I always brush a little melted chocolate over my parbaked pie crust before adding in the pastry cream, and this actually helps keep the crust fairly crispy even on the second day (should you actually have leftovers). Plus, this is one of those pies where you can make the individual parts in advance and assemble when ready to eat. So, basically, great for a dinner party!
