I've been a little obsessed with making pie.
I love pie.
I love the crust and the fruity middle, the flavors that melt in your mouth.
Here's another pie recipe.
Paul said he liked this one better than the Blueberry Dream made a few weeks ago. I think I might have to agree.
This is so easy, a no-bake pie and is so good. If you don't want to make a graham cracker crust you can also use the Chex cereal crust, Pamela's shortbread cookies in place of the grahams, or there's a chocolate shell on the bottom that I think could take the place of a crust.
Strawberries & Cream Pie
1 cup (6oz) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
3 t. shortening, divided
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 t. vanilla
1 8oz carton Cool Whip
2 cups fresh strawberries, halved
1/2 cup seedless strawberry jam
In the microwave, melt 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 2 t. shortening; stir until smooth. Brush over crust. Refrigerate until firm.
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Arrange strawberries over pie. In the microwave, heat jam until melted; brush over the top. Melt remaining chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over pie. Refrigerate until chilled.
