Strawberry Cream Pie Recipe
16 oz. (1 lb.) container of fresh strawberries, cut into thin slices (save a few for garnish)
2 Tbsp. (or 1/8 cup) sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 8-ounce tub Coolwhip
For pie crust:
1 1/2 cup vanilla wafer crumbs (or graham cracker crumbs if you prefer)
6 Tbsp. melted butter
Wash and cut up your strawberries into thin wedges and place in medium size bowl. Add 2 Tbsp. sugar and stir. Cover and let sit in refrigerator a minimum of 2 hours, to allow strawberries to break down and form a little syrup/juice. You can even do this the day before, if you have time.
Meantime, you can make the crust. Place vanilla wafers into food processor to grind them into a powder, or place them in a large ziplock back and break them up by running a rolling pin back & forth across the sealed bag.
Place crumbs into a bowl, add in melted butter and mix well. Dump mixture into pie plate and press down with spoon or fingers to form pie crust. You should have an even layer of crust on the bottom and sides of your pie plate. Set aside.
When strawberries have set long enough, add 1Tbsp. lemon juice to them and stir. Empty Coolwhip container into a large mixing bowl. Fold in strawberry mixture until evenly mixed. Then take strawberry/Coolwhip mixture and pour it into pie crust, using a knife or spatula to spread it across evenly. Refrigerate pie two hours to allow it to set. When it’s time to serve, garnish it with fresh strawberries and enjoy!
