This afternoon I debated what kind of pie to bake - peach or strawberry?  Strawberry Cream Supreme won out.
  As you can see, a little bit is
 missing now too!

I went outside after supper (do you say supper or dinner?) and put the pie on a bench.

These were the best strawberries I have found this year.

For the pie crust you will need 1 cup sifted flour, 1/3 cup + 1 Tb of crisco and 2-3 Tb. ice water.  Mix all and form dough - roll out and place in regular sized pie pan crimping edges.  I brushed my edge with some egg yolk. Sit shell aside but do not bake yet.
  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

For the cream cheese base of pie:  
1 - 8 oz cream cheese softened, 1/3 cup 
of sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix these ingredients together in a small bowl and pour over the pie pastry spreading to the edges. 

Now the pie filling:
Wash, cap and cut into 2 cups of strawberries and place them in a small pan.  Add 1 cup of sugar.  In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup of water with 3 Tb cornstarch and whisk well.  Add to saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil to thicken.  When thick pour into a bowl to cool.  Take out about 2/3 cup of this mix and spread it over the cream cheese base in the pie.  Place the pie in the oven at 450 degrees for 8 minutes.  Drop the temperature to 350 degrees for another 10 minutes.  Cool the shell.

Clean and cap about 2 more cups of strawberries.  When the pie is cool pour 1/2 of the remaining cooked and cooled strawberry mixture into the pie shell.  Arrange the strawberries on top neatly in rows from the center out.  Pour all the rest of the cooled strawberry mixture over the fresh ones.

My sister would just love that! She use to sit in our grandparent's strawberry patch and eat berries until her hands were red from picking! Beautiful setting with the flowers, XOXO
