Strawberries and Cream Pie
- 1 1/2 c
- graham cracker crumbs (about 9 full crackers crushed)
- 5 Tbsp
- butter, melted
- 2 pkg
- 8 oz blocks of cream cheese, room temp (16oz total)
- 2 c
- heavy cream + 1 tbsp
- 2/3 c
- 2 tsp
- vanilla extract
- carton strawberries
- 1/2 c
- semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Bake for 10 min. Set aside to cool completely.
(You are done with the oven at this point so turn it off!)
Spoon filling into cooled pie crust and spread it out in an even layer.
Melt chocolate + 1 tbsp of cream ( I actually just used 2% milk because I only bought a pint of heavy cream and it worked just fine) and stir until smooth and liquid. Drizzle melted chocolate over the strawberries.
* I didn't use the whole carton of strawberries, so slice and place as you go so you don't cut up the whole carton if you don't need to. For the chocolate, I just put the chips and a little milk in a bowl in the microwave for 15 sec. I pulled it out and stirred until the chocolate was melted. It was a little thick for drizzling so I added a little more milk at a time until I got the consistency I wanted.
