Preparation

Strawberry-Cream Cheese Pie

BY: Elinor Klivans

Whole strawberries make a stunning topping for this creamy

cheesecake-like pie. Using a food processor to mix the filling will

ensure it’s smooth.

CRUST

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon grated orange peel

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

FILLING

2 eggs

2/3 cup sugar

12 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

TOPPING

4 cups whole fresh strawberries

1/4 cup red currant jelly, melted

1. Heat oven to 325°F. Spray 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.

Combine crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon orange peel in

medium bowl. Stir in melted butter until crumbs are moistened. Press

into bottom and up sides of pan. Bake 6 minutes or until set.

2. Process eggs and 2/3 cup sugar in food processor 1 minute or until

smooth. Add cream cheese; pulse to break up. Process 15 seconds or

until smooth. Add all remaining filling ingredients; process just

until smooth. Pour into crust.

3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until top is firm when gently shaken and

outside edge is slightly puffed. Place on wire rack; cover with paper

towels. Cool 2 hours. Remove paper towels; cool to room temperature.

Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 5 hours or

overnight.

4. Arrange strawberries over top of pie; brush with jelly. Serve cold.
