Wow, wow, wow! This was the first time I ever made a strawberry pie. I was at the grocery and spotted a container of the strawberry glaze. I decided to try this one because it had no pictures or reviews yet. I decided to make my own graham cracker crust instead of using an store bought.
I've made this recipe a few times and everyone I've made it for raves about it. I used mascarpone cheese instead and it turned out great!
You had me at "Strawberry, and pie". YUM. The ONLY thing I do differently is use less of the glaze. I only use enough to lightly coat the berries on top to kind of "gel" things together. This is so refreshing, not overly sweet, and perfect for any summer get-together. If you like strawberries, graham cracker crust, and rich, creamy cheeses...........then this is for you. :) (P.S.- I know in some areas Neufchatel would be difficult to find. You can use any smooth & creamy cheese. Just add less or more depending on the richness & consistency).
Really tasty and delicious! All I would do is add a bit more sugar to the cream cheese. It was a bit too..."cheesy" for me.
This is very easy and delicious. I made my own graham cracker crust. Used powdered sugar in the cream cheese mixture in place of the granulated sugar and added about a cup of cool whip free for texture. This turns out to be a relatively lower calorie and lower fat dessert with lots of goodness from fresh strawberries. A definite keeper! I will be making this again!
Excellent recipe....only change I made was to use mascarpone cheese and double the strawberries :). I put the glaze in a Baggie, cut the tip off and squeezed on to top of pie, much easier that way!
