#20: Strawberry Cream Pie

Posted by: Meryl at 8:19 pm on Jun 3, 2012

I often double this, and put it into a springform pan - it seems to hold up better when doubled. I've also made it with frozen raspberries, thawed and drained.



8 oz. pkg. cream cheese; softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash nutmeg
1 cup (+ additional for garnish) strawberries; sliced
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
9-inch graham cracker crust


Combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg until well blended. Mash 1 cup strawberry slices, stir into cream cheese mixture. Whip cream with powdered sugar until stiff peaks form; fold into cream cheese mixture; spoon into crust. Chill several hours or overnight.

Before serving, garnish with sliced strawberries in an overlapping circle on pie.

Optional: Serve with whipped cream and a mint leaf on the side.
