GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST
A. You can chill it in the fridge for one hour until set. Or
B. You can bake it in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Then it must cool for about an hour before it is filled.
In a medium bowl, mix the PLAIN cream cheese with the sugar. Whip it for one minute. Add the vanilla extract and sour cream. Whip it again for one minute.
You have a couple of choices here.
A. Alternate the strawberry cream cheese with the plain by dolloping it across the crust. Swirl with a knife.
B. Pour half the Plain cream cheese into the pie crust. Dollop the strawberry one on top. Cover with remaining plain cream cheese. Swirl with a knife.
C. Pour all the Plain cream cheese into the crust. Spread the strawberry cream cheese across the top of the pie, leaving a ring of the plain cheese showing by the crust.
You can use a pre-made graham cracker crust. Or a cookie crust.
