1 9 inch pie crust; pre baked
8 oz Cream cheese; softened
1/3 c Sugar
1 ts Almond extract
1 c Whipped cream; whipped
4 c Fresh strawberries; washed,
1/2 c Chocolate chips
1 tb Unsalted butter
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sugar
and almond extract; blend well. Fold in whipping cream. Gently pour
into pre-baked pie crust. Arrange strawberries, carefully over the
filling. Chill. TOPPING Melt chocolate chips and unsalted butter in a
small pan over low heat (or in a double boiler for worry free
melting). Stir continuously, until smooth. Drizzle over strawberries.
Chill for several hours or overnight. Delicious and sooooo beautiful!
VARIATION You can dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate and
then place them on the pie. You need to work quickly and will need to
double (at least) the chocolate/butter mixture.
