Strawberry Pie.

I am so happy with the warmer weather we've been having. It really does wonders for my mood (read: balances out my crazy pregnant-lady mood swings so they are tolererable for those around me).

The other day at the grocery store they were offering samples of fresh strawberries. I thought, "Why not?!" 2 packages of strawberries in hand and leaving the store, I was already stoked to get home and make my favorite treat--strawberry pie. It made me so happy and I thought maybe you could use a spring-ish dessert recipe, too.

Strawberry Pie

Graham crackers
6 tbsp butter
3 tbsp sugar
1 tub cool whip (we actually used 2 cups heavy whipping cream instead, prepared according to instructions)
2 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Fresh Strawberries
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips

First, prepare your crust by mixing graham cracker crumbs (about 10 full crackers' worth), the melted butter, and sugar in a pie plate. Press the crumb mixture into the plate. For the filling, mix your whipped cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Pour that over the crust. Place the washed, hulled strawberries on top of the pie. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over the strawberries. Allow to cool in the refrigerator so the chocolate can harden. Yum!

This was what I usually asked my Mom to make instead of a cake every year on my birthday, and it is so yummy. Enjoy!


  1. So we had a court of honor tonight. Each scout was to make a dessert to bring. Alex chose to make your strawberry pie. The poor kid didn't get any. I got a bite, which I shared with my dad. Jim got a forkful of crust. We have enough to do another pie for FHE tomorrow, which is good thing because now we will know why it was so popular.

    PS- Alex did make it himself with only a little supervision.

    1. Wow, go Alex! That's awesome! I'm so happy you guys will get to try the pie yourselves tonight...hopefully you love it as much as I do!


Don't be shy! I want to hear from you!
