I'm almost embarrassed to share this "recipe". Normally when I make a strawberry pie I use a traditional pastry crust and follow this recipe. Yesterday, because I was making a few other things for lunch, I decided to cheat a little bit.
I made a graham cracker crust, cut up some fresh strawberries, and then made a cream cheese mixture. I placed the fresh strawberries on top of the cream cheese mixture, and then refrigerated the whole pie until I was ready to serve it.
A perfect summer-time dessert - easy, fresh-tasting and creamy!
