EASY STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE PIE
graham cracker pie crust
cream cheese, room temperature (1/2 brick)
whipped topping, thawed (!/2 tub)
lemon juice (bottled is ok)
1 - 3 oz.
strawberry flavored gelatin
10 to 12
frozen strawberries (sliced or halved makes for easier slicing, but i usually use small whole berries)
1Remove cover from graham cracker crust; wash cover in warm soap water; dry cover and set aside.
2In a mixing bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat together 4 ounces softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth and creamy (about 2 minutes.)
3Add 1 cup thawed whipped topping (such as Cool Whip) and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice; beat until thoroughly combined.
4Scrape cream cheese mixture into graham pie crust; evenly smooth. Set aside.
5Pour red strawberry gelatin powder into a mixing bowl
6Add 1 cup boiling water to gelatin; stir constantly until completely dissolved.
7Add frozen strawberries, stirring constantly until liquid begins to thicken.
8Immediately pour strawberry mixture, evenly, over the cream cheese mixture in pie crust. (Work quickly to distribute the berries evenly because it sets up quickly.)
9Place the clean plastic cover over pie; refrigerate for at least 1 1/2 hours before serving.
10Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
