No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Pie


Here's a delightful and refreshing dessert for a hot summer day. It's quick to throw together and a family favorite at our house. 



Start by mixing 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs with 3 TBS sugar.  Add in 1/3 cup margarine and mix right in the pie plate.


Press it firmly up the sides and in the bottom to form the crust.  Stick the pie pan in the freezer while you make the filling.


Plop two 8oz. packages of cream cheese in a mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.  whip until well blended.


Next, add 1/2  of a 4 serving package of strawberry Jello mix and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.  Mix well.


When it's pretty and pink, add 1 cup of chopped strawberries to the bowl and mix.  Then fold in 1 8oz. tub of Cool whip.


Try really, really hard not to lick the mixing paddle!


Spoon the filling into the crust and add a few berries on top.


Cover and keep it refrigerated until you are ready to devour it.
