Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie Recipe

I love strawberries. Strawberries are my favorite fruit. We have a strawberry patch close to our house. You can go to the field and pick strawberries if you like. They also have a fruit stand where they sell the strawberries already picked. We used to go pick them in the field when my children and I were younger, but now I go to the stand and buy the ones that have already been picked.

The strawberries are much fresher and better than the ones you get at the grocery store. Yesterday I started to make a dip for the strawberries I had bought over the weekend and ended up making a pie. I hope you enjoy it. I made mine in a large store-bought graham cracker crust, but all of the jello wouldn't fit in the pie shell. You may want to make your own crust and layer it in a 9 x 13 pan.



Ingredients:

Pie Crust: Either use a large pre-made pie crust or
 2 cups of Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter, melted
Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

Cream Cheese Layer:
2 8oz. Cream Cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 8oz. Cool Whip

Jello Layer:
Fresh Strawberries, sliced
1 pkg. strawberry Jello
 (made according to package directions)

Use as Top Layer or Garnish with:
1 8oz. cool whip
Fresh Strawberries (cut in half)

Directions:

Either use a pre-made crust or make your own crust in a 9x13 pan. Let cool if you make your own. Cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar. Then, add cool whip. Layer on top of pie crust. Mix up jello and let cool in fridge for about 1 hour. Meanwhile slice strawberries and arrange on top of cream cheese layer. Pour Jello over strawberries and let cool for several hours or overnight, until jello is set. Garnish with cool whip and more strawberries when ready to serve. Keep refrigerated.

Like I said earlier I love strawberries so as far as I am concerned you can't have too many strawberries. The more the merrier.

Enjoy,
Deborah
