Strawberries and Cream Pie

These babies are in season. That means that there was no way I could pass them up and not use them in my baking. So I found this to make on a hot Friday afternoon. No bake, sweet, rich, yet somehow light. It was the perfect summery dessert.

What you'll need:
-1 graham cracker pie crust
- 2 8 oz packages of cream cheese, room temperature
- 2 cups heavy cream + 1 tablespoon
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 carton of strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

To Make:

- In a mixer, beat cream until it peaks.
- In a separate bowl, cream together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla
- Fold in about 1/3 of the cream into the cream cheese mixture to mix, then fold in the rest.

I would recommend you taste this mixture. Only because it's delicious and you might not be able to stop eating it. Noah and I had issues when we made this. Just look at it. Doesn't it look yummy?
-Okay, now that you've hopefully tested this, pour the mixture into the pie crust, then top with strawberries.

One could stop right there. You would have a delicious strawberry pie and have no regrets. But since I'm a chocoholic, I had to melt chocolate chips and top the pie. The only issue was that they didn't get liquidy enough to really drizzle over the pie, so it would be smart to melt them with a tablespoon of cream.

The final product may have not been beautiful, but it was delicious. The Couets enjoyed it, and Noah and I had fun making it. We even had time for a pie fight.
Happy summer and enjoy!
