adapted from Blue Ribbon Recipes

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust store-bought or homemade

For the filling:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar

For the topping:

  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

For the garnish:

  • sweetened whipped cream
  • chocolate-covered strawberries

Instructions

  1. Bake pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate according to the instructions on the box or the recipe you are using. Set aside to cool.

To make the filling:

  1. Combine strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Cool to room temperature.
  2. In a double boiler (or a microwave) melt the white chocolate chips. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until combined. Slowly add the melted white chocolate chips. Add the strawberry mixture and continue beat until well blended. Pour into the baked pie crust. Smooth the top with a rubber spatula.

To make the topping:

  1. Place the semisweet chocolate chips in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Heat the heavy whipping cream in a saucepan over medium heat until it just begins to bubble. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Drizzle the topping over the pie. Chill for at least 2 hours and garnish with whipped cream and chocolate-covered strawberries.
