Ingredients

1
9 inch pie crust ( i made homemade) can use store bought

CRUST I USED WHICH WAS VERY GOOD WITH THIS PIE ( I DO THE CRUST IN MY FOOD PROCESSOR ) I DID THIS IN MY FOOD PROCESSOR..PULSED THE SALT AND FLOUR, THEN ADDED THE SHORTENING...PULSED ABOUT 10 TIMES..THEN ADDED THE LIQUID TILL FORMED A BALL.

REFRIDGERATE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR

1 - 1/3 c
flour
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
shortening
5 - 6 tsp
milk
4 tsp
water

CREAM CHEESE LAYER

1 pkg
(8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp
sugar
1 - 1 1/2 Tbsp
milk

GLAZE

1 3/4 c
water
2 Tbsp
corn starch
1 pinch
salt
1/2 c
sugar
1 - 3 oz
box, strawberry gelatin
2 - 16 oz
containers of fresh strawberries, washed and sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Have crust prepared and cooled.

Wash and slice your strawberries.
2
In a mixing bowl; mix the cream cheese, sugar and milk till smooth.
3
Spread the cream cheese layer evenly onto the cooled crust. Refrigerate just till set up.
4
In a medium pan, whisk the water, corn starch, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, continue to stir until thickened. About 2 - 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and whisk in the strawberry gelatin, blending well.

Set aside to cool to about room temperature.
5
After the glaze has had time to cool; blend it with the sliced strawberries. Stir to coat the strawberries well. I sometimes put this in the refrigerator till ready to fill the pie.

Spread the strawberries over the chilled cream cheese layer.

Refrigerate till ready to serve.

I sometimes serve it with a dollop of whipped cream and a fresh strawberry.

This is delicious..hope you like this pie as much as my family and friends do.
