Pi Day: Strawberry Pie @ Elli's in Salinas

Melanie Wong | Mar 14, 201305:53 PM     5

We commemorated Pie Day (3.14) with an individual strawberry pie, $4.25, house-baked at Elli's Great American. While I was somewhat leery of the gigantic berries, assuming they were cultivated more for looks than taste, fortunately, these were sweet and juicy, as good an early season berry as one can find. A sturdy butter cookie crust and pastry cream underneath, and a light glaze over the top of the strawberries completed the picture. Just right for a shared afternoon snack.

Other pie choices in the case today included coconut cream, chocolate-banana cream, blueberry-apple crisp, and apple pie.
