Strawberry Pie...Southern Style!

With our family being from Indiana there are many recipes we cook that have originated from the south...and to be honest I love it!

We always think strawberry pie is yummy however we add a nice little filling in the pie shell before we fill it with fresh cut strawberries and pie glaze.  It's a family favorite in our house, especially during the summer, and if you want to make it festive for Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day just toss in a few blueberries!  Trust me, it will end up red, white and blue!

Strawberry Pie...Southern Style

2-9inch pie crust (we like Marie Colander)
2lbs fresh washed and sliced strawberries
2-16 ounce packages of Wicks strawberry pie glaze
1 8oz brick of cream cheese
1.5 to 2 cups confection sugar
2 + tablespoons milk

Bake frozen pie crust as directed and let cool.  Wash and slice strawberries and place in bowl.  Add Wicks strawberry pie glaze.  In a separate bowl microwave cream cheese for 30 seconds to soften.  Add powdered sugar and milk. Mix together with mixer until smooth. If mixture is too thick add a little more milk. Spread cream cheese mixture into the bottom of the pie crust. Spoon strawberry glaze mixture on top of the cream cheese mixture.  Refrigerate and enjoy!
