My Favorite Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie
This is Total YUM
It spells "SUMMER" with tastebuds of JOY
My Easy Recipe For Strawberry Pie
Baked Pie Shell (purchased or home-made)
1 Qt. strawberries
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbl. cornstarch
1/2 cup water
4 oz. cream cheese
Red food coloring
Cut up 1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries and cook with 1/2 cup water
about 2 minutes. Slice remaining strawberries in half.
Combine the sugar with the cornstarch and add to cooked berries.
Cook and stir until thick and bubbly.
Add a few drops red food coloring.
Stir and remove from heat.
Spread softened cream cheese in cooled pie shell.
Line with half of the sliced berries,
pour cooked berries on top,
then decorate with more sliced berries.
Refrigerate. When cool, slice and serve with whipped cream.
Let your tastebuds rejoice!
The cream cheese is what makes this so delicious.
I am thinking I'll go have a piece for breakfast.
Oh the happy tasty color of red!

I've always wanted strawberry pie but have never had it. It looks sooo tasty! I came over to your blog after I'd seen through Blogger Stats that you'd been to mine. Of course I was hooked as soon as I saw the dogs. Then when I saw the one cooking breakfast in the kitchen...that sealed it. I had to become a follower. Love the images and paintings.

One time when I
was taking summer
classes at college,
my mom and I bought
a pie just like this
one and sat on the
floor of my sorority
bedroom with two
forks and ate the
WHOLE thing!!! I love
that memory....This
looks delish : )
No, we didn't make it
to Seattle, this trip,
but fun to think that
we might have twins in
the area!!! I wonder if
the twins were tall, as
we both are! Today is
my last day here and tomorrow
it's home to the Midwest.
Although I realize all
good things must end, this
is the hardest part of
the trip, for me.
Hope you are enjoying
the weekend, Violet!

Dearest Violet, your comments are so touching my dear friend; it also touches me that my choice of topic, pictures and text can inspire. And Ruben....he is an angel. I am so blessed to know that we ALL will be in eternity to run with the angels and who know what else!!!!!!! Glitter maybe down the streets of gold? Eye has not seen........
