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.
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
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!
