Strawberries and Cream Pie

Go here for the video!!!

With lots of strawberries on hand, one of the first desserts that comes to my mind is this strawberries and cream pie. A few simple ingredients combine together to sum up more a whole that is so much more than its parts!
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 minute
  • Total time: 11 minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • 1 cup(s) of heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounce(s) of Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup(s) of sugar
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. of almond extract
  • 2 cup(s) of strawberries, cut in half
  • 1 9 inch graham cracker crust
  • 1/3 cup(s) of hot fudge topping, warmed until spoonable
  1. Whip the whipping cream in a chilled bowl with a chilled whisk/beaters until soft peaks are formed.
  2. In another large bowl/mixer, beat the cream cheese for 2-3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for another 2-3 minutes. Add the vanilla and almond extracts and beat until just combined.
  3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, taking care not to over mix.
  4. Pour into the graham cracker crust.
  5. Arrange the strawberry halves on top. Drizzle the fudge topping on the strawberries.
  6. Chill pie in the refrigerator until set and ready to serve. Leftovers can be store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
