Easy Strawberry Pie
adapted from Casual Cuisine
1 single pie crust (I opted to use the Pillsbury store bought kind for this.)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
5 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
3 ounces of cream cheese, softened
Cook pie crust according to directions. set aside to cool.
Combine sugar, water, cornstarch, and strawberries. Cook on medium heat until mixture starts to bubble, then reduce to a medium-low simmer and stir frequently until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Spread cream cheese on the bottom of the cooked pie crust. pour strawberry filling over cream cheese. Cool for a few hours in the refrigerator.
Serve by itself, with a dollop of whipped cream, or a scoop of ice cream.
