French Berry Pie

A beautiful basket of strawberries just called out to me to
create a luscious pie for them to top.

Remember my French Peach Pie? 

 I decided I would make
it topped with fresh strawberries and pie cherries.

This is such an easy and fabulous pie to make.

It goes together in minutes and always gets compliments.

French Berry Pie

1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 T. lemon juice
2 C. whipped cream or 2 C. Cool Whip
1 tsp. almond flavoring

9 inch pie crust, baked and cooled

2 C. sliced strawberries
1 can pie cherries

In a large bowl mix the sweetened condensed milk with the 
lemon juice adding 1 T. at a time.  Fold in the whipped cream
or Cool Whip (I used Cool Whip today to save on fat) and
the almond flavoring.  Pour the filling into the prepared pie
crust.  Place in fridge and let cool.

Just before serving gently stir together the fresh
strawberries and the cherries.  Top the pie with the
fruit.  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

I usually make this with a traditional baked pie crust but
today I made it with pre-made graham cracker crusts.  Either
work great, or make your own graham cracker crust.

Thanks for visiting Purple Chocolat Home today!


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
