Today is National Strawberry Sundae Day

Today is National Strawberry Sundae Day; a day to celebrate the creamy fruit fusion of strawberries and ice cream.

For a new twist on the classic dessert, celebrate the day with this recipe for a Super Strawberry Sundae Pie from That Creative Mom Cooks!

Super Strawberry Sundae Pie

1 pint strawberries, sliced
1 (9-inch) reduced-fat or regular graham cracker pie crust
4 cups softened vanilla ice cream
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoon chocolate topping (optional)
Whipped cream (for garnish)
Marachino cherries (for garnish)

Line the bottom of the pie shell with the sliced strawberries; top with 2 cups of the ice cream. Drizzle 1/3 cup chocolate topping over ice cream. Add another layer of strawberries. Spoon remaining ice cream evenly over pie. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate topping. Freeze several hours or overnight.

Let thaw 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with whipped cream, remaining strawberries and marachino cherries.

Yields 8 servings.
