SERVES: 0

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. cultured cream cheese
  • 1-2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3-4 cups fresh, organic strawberries
  • ¼ cup organic cornstarch
  • ¾ cup unrefined cane sugar
  • 1-9” pie shell, baked

Directions

In a food processor, or with an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese and lemon juice until it has a soft, frosting-like consistency. Spread into the bottom of a 9” baked pie shell.

Pick out the largest berries of the bunch, remove tops, and press into the cream cheese bottom. Dice up remaining strawberries, and add to a medium sauce pan.

Cook berries over medium heat, adding sugar and cornstarch (combine dry ingredients together first, or it will clump). Stir with a wooden spoon until strawberry mixture becomes thick and clear in color.

Pour hot strawberry filling into your prepared cream cheese pie shell. Chill in refrigerator until set, at least 2-3 hours.

Recipe Notes

Substitute pie shell for a gluten-free option.
