About National Strawberry Cream Pie Day
On September 28th, National Strawberry Cream Pie Day is celebrated to honor one of the most delicious and iconic desserts of the fall season. Strawberry cream pie is a mouthwatering combination of juicy strawberries, creamy filling, and a crispy crust that is sure to delight anyone with a sweet tooth.
Strawberry cream pie is typically made with a graham cracker or pastry crust, a creamy filling made of whipped cream or cream cheese, and a layer of fresh strawberries on top.

The holiday is a chance to celebrate this beloved treat and to experiment with new flavors and variations.
One of the great things about strawberry cream pie is its versatility. It can be made with different types of crust, from a traditional pastry crust to a gluten-free or vegan option. It can also be topped with different types of berries, like raspberries or blackberries, or mixed with other fruits like peaches or blueberries.
Celebrating National Strawberry Cream Pie Day can be as simple as enjoying a slice of pie at home or as involved as hosting a pie-making party with friends or family. Many bakeries and restaurants also offer special promotions or discounts on strawberry cream pie to mark the occasion.
