Recipe: Strawberry Meringue Pie

Posted on: August 1st, 2013 by Amy Martin No Comments

What’s the best part of summer? Berry pies! Really, the best part of any season is dessert, but I particularly love pies and cobblers in the summer. Blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, blackberry… there’s no ‘berry’ dessert I’ll snub my nose to.

Before summer is over, try this summer berry recipe from the Boulders, A Waldorf Astoria Resort for Strawberry-Meringue Pie (it’s only 198 calories per serving!).
