Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie

Trust me when I tell you that this strawberry pie will be one of your new favorite recipes…as well as one of the easiest pies you will make! It can be whipped up in a few minutes and does not even need to be baked. It’s also beautiful and will definitely impress!

This filling is only 3 ingredients…cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar. The healthier version can be made with light cream cheese, greek yogurt, and your sweetener of choice (Stevia, maple, etc). I make this with a regular pie crust but would be great with graham cracker as well.

I then cut the strawberries in half and place them on top of the cream cheese mixture.  I arrange them in circles around the pie and then fill in the gaps with a strawberry jam and then drizzle with melted chocolate. Oh, and did I mention that I also brush a thin layer of melted chocolate on the cooked pie crust before adding the cream cheese mixture??  That’s a nice surprise when eating this pie!

Ingredients
  1. 1 pre-cooked pie crust
  2. 2 blocks cream cheese
  3. 1/2 cup sour cream
  4. 1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)---taste as you go!
  5. 1 package strawberries, sliced in half
  6. 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  7. 1/2 package semi-sweet chocolate chips--melted (or chocolate of choice)
Instructions
  1. Melt the chocolate chips and brush a thin layer of chocolate onto the bottom of the (already) cooked pie crust. Place in refrigerator for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
  2. Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar together until creamy. Taste as you go and add more sweetener if needed...but the filling does not have to be super sweet.
  3. Spread the cream cheese into the pie shell evenly.
  4. Place the strawberries on the pie in circular rows.
  5. Put your jelly/jam into a microwave safe bowl and heat it up for about 30 seconds to "thin" it out.
  6. Using a spoon, place little dollops of jelly in all the gaps between the strawberries (where you can see the cream cheese). Avoid getting the jelly on the crust.
  7. Place the rest of the melted chocolate in to a small baggie and seal it. Cut off one of the corners of the baggie (very small piece) to drizzle the chocolate over the pie.
  8. Drizzle and then place the pie in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.
  9. Enjoy!
