Make With Me- Aunt Mary's Strawberry Cream Pie

Aunt Mary's Strawberry Cream Pie

  • 12 oz (1 1/2 packages) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 squares semi sweet chocolate
  • 19" baked pie shell
  • 2-3 cups ripe strawberries, sliced

To Make:
  • In a bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and almond extract until smooth
  • In another bowl, beat whipping cream (not too stiff)
  • Fold whipping cream into cheese mixture
  • Melt one square of chocolate
  • With the back of the spoon, spread melted chocolate over the bottom of the baked pie shell and let cool
  • Spoon half of the cream cheese/whipped cream mixture into pie shell and cover with 2/3 of the sliced strawberries
  • Cover strawberries with the remaining of the cream cheese/whipped cream mixture
  • Place remaining strawberries on top
  • Melt the rest of the chocolate (1/2 square) and drizzle over pie
  • Chill at least one hour
  • Enjoy!

  1. Another  recipe from my Aunt Mary.
  2. I have used Cool Whip in place of whipping cream
  3. Almond extract can be substituted for vanilla extract- or use both!
  4. Make sure the pie shell is baked prior to to making the rest of the pie!
  5. I've never done this...but I'm sure the strawberries can be replaced by other berries (raspberries, blueberries) and fruit (bananas).
