Ingredients

Crust Ingredients:

  • 8 Graham Crackers, crushed
  • 4 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar

Filling Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. cream cheese (1 1/2 bricks), at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 eggs

Topping Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting, optional)

Instructions

  1. For the crust, combine all ingredients and firmly press into a deep pie plate. I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup to really press the crust down firm. If you absolutely have to… you can skip this step and buy a pre-made graham cracker crust… but please don’t!
  2. Once the pie crust is done, preheat oven to 350°. For the filling, combine the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and eggs. Mix until you have a smooth creamy texture. Pour into graham cracker crust and bake for 20-25 minutes, until center is almost set.
  3. While the filling is baking, combine the sour cream and sugar for the topping. Mix until smooth. Spread over the warm filling and cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Chill for at least 6 hours or overnight. Before serving, cut the tops off of the strawberries and place them upside down on the pie. Dust with confectioners sugar.
  5. Enjoy!!!
