Notes

1: You can easily skip a couple of the steps in this recipe by buying the pie crusts and the vanilla cream premade.
2: The baked pie crusts, with the nut cream, can be frozen and used on a later point.
3: Spread out 50 g (2 oz) of melted chocolate on top of the nut cream on each pie. When it is hardened pour the vanilla-cream on top and decorate with strawberries. The chocolate gives an extra great taste to the pies.
4: Try to swap out the strawberries with different fruit (like blackberry, raspberry and blueberry).
