Strawberry Cream Pie

Okay so there are a few recipes I keep promising to post, and I just keep forgetting. So here's one from staff retreat that I hope you all can enjoy =)

Literally the easiest pie ever!


1 Keebler ready pie crust
1 bar softened room temp. cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 canister of cool whip
1 lb. fresh sliced strawberries
1 tbsp. granulated sugar

In a small mixing bowl toss together sliced strawberries and 1 tbsp. of sugar. cover and chill for about 1 hour.

In medium mixing bowl combine cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar and whip until sugar is completely incorporated into cheese. Should be creamy with no lumps.
** If cream cheese is even slightly chilled, you will get lumps so be sure to give it ample time to sit out.

Next, add cool whip and gently fold into cream cheese mixture until well blended. Don't whip it as this will thin out the whipped cream and make it runny.

Pour cream mixture into pie crust and spread evenly. Allow it to chill for 3-4 hours.

Top with strawberries when ready to serve =)

Hope you ladies enjoy this one!
