This is a really easy, yet very delicious pie. It's sure to impress your family and your guests. It has a sweet and tart strawberry layer on top of a smooth, lightly sweetened cream cheese layer, with a hint of lemon, in a crunchy graham cracker crust. So pretty and so yummy! (NOTE: Use only frozen berries for best results.)
