This is a light, cool, creamy, flavorful dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth when it’s hot outside, or any time for that matter!
It reminds me of strawberry shortcake but in a pie version.
It’s not too sweet and who doesn’t love chocolate & strawberries!?
1 cooked pie crust
Cook according to pie crust directions and let cool
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8 oz cream cheese softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
10-12 strawberries – cut in halves
Depending on the size of the strawberries. If I have one that’s really big, I quarter it
1/2 Tbsp. shortening
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.
Gradually add in sugar and vanilla.
Fold cream cheese mixture into the beaten heavy whipped cream until evenly combined.
Spoon into cooled pie crust.
Arrange strawberries over the top of filling.
Melt 1/2 Tbsp shortening and 1/4 cup chocolate chips in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
Drizzle over strawberries & Refrigerate at least 1-2 hours
