Miz Helen's Kitchen

Ingredients

For The Crust

1-1/2 cups Graham Cracker crumbs

1/2 cup sugar

5 tablespoons butter, melted

For The Pie Filling

1-8 ounce block cream cheese, softened

1-14 ounce can condensed milk

1-8 ounce container whipped topping

1/3 cup lime juice

zest of 1 lime

2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped small

1/2 cup strawberry jam

whole strawberries for garnish

Directions

For The Crust

Place the Graham Cracker crumbs in a 9 inch pie plate.

Mix the sugar with the crumbs until blended well.

Melt the butter and pour it onto the crumb mixture.  Mix together with a fork until all the crumbs are butter.  Press the crumbs on to the bottom and sides of the pie plate to form the crust.  Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

For The Filling

In an electric mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese and condensed milk until creamy with no lumps. Add the lime juice and lime zest. Fold in the whipped topping and the chopped strawberries.  Very carefully swirl in the strawberry jam. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.

Garnish with whole strawberries.

Enjoy!
