|The cheesecake layer is my favorite.|
Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie1. Bake a pie crust. I used refrigerated pie crust dough that comes from the store, but home made would be fine. I suppose you could use graham cracker crust - which would elevate this pie into the 'no-bake' category.
2. Whip 8 oz. (room temperature) light cream cheese (neufchatel) and add in about 1/4 cup (more or less to taste) powdered sugar. Gently beat in some Cool-whip (about a cup?). Spread in the bottom of your cooled crust.
3. Slice up a bunch of Strawberries (about 4 cups). I used my egg slicer, but a knife is fine.
4. Mix Strawberries with something. I used slightly cooled Danish Dessert (found in the Jello section of the grocery store), but feel free to use whatever glaze you have available.
|Steve assured me that Upside-down Strawberry Cheesecake Pie tasted just about as good.|
