In today’s post I am going to share my favorite summer pie. This is the pie that I always begged my mother to make when I was younger. Now that I can make it myself, I usually make it for two nights.
So without further ado, here is the recipe
Strawberry’s Lovers Pie
3 squares (I ounce each) of semisweet chocolate divided
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 pastry shell (9 inches) baked
2 packages (3 ounces, each) cream cheese softened
1/2 cup of sour cream
3 tablespoons sugar
3 to 4 cups of fresh strawberries hulled
1/3 cup of Strawberry Jam Melted
In a saucepan, melt 2 ounces chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly; spread or brush over the bottom and up the sides of the pastry shell. Chill.
Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread over chocolate layer; cover and chill for 2 hours.
After two hours, Arrange strawberries, tip end up, atop the filling. Brush jam over strawberries. Melt the remaining chocolate, and drizzle over all. Yield: 6-8 servings.
