This refreshing Strawberry Amaretto Pie has a no-roll amaretto crust, a strawberry-amaretto filling and is served with almond whipped cream. It’s so delicious! Get yourself some berries and get baking!
This was supposed to be a post about strawberry amaretto pie and how pie in general makes me happy. But, since I was born in Cleveland and have lived here most of my life, I must say, WE WON!!!! WE WON!!! The Cavs are the 2016 NBA Champions!
If you’re a Warriors fan, I know it’s disappointing your team lost. Trust me, I know the feeling. But, I hope you can appreciate what this victory means for Cleveland. It’s our first championship in any major league sport in 52 years. I missed the last one by five years, since I wasn’t even born yet.
And, sports aside, Cleveland has endured years of jokes and jeers. It’s gotten much better in the last decade, but anyone my age who grew up here knows the sting of settling in for a night of comedy on TV and hearing our beloved hometown being used as fodder for everyone else’s entertainment. We’re the city that got bullied on life’s playgrounds. We had to be tough.
But, our story has a happy ending, or better yet, a new beginning. We no longer have to assume we’ll lose. We can see possibilities where we once saw problems. We are the champions, and we’ll learn to think like champions.
I hope you enjoy this strawberry amaretto pie. I worked on the recipe for the past few weeks to get it right. Some things are worth the wait!
