Directions

  1. Combine crumbs and butter in a small bowl. Press firmly on bottom and up side of a 9" pie plate. Refrigerate until firm. Or to save time, you could just buy a chocolate graham cracker pie crust.
  2. Reserving 3 strawberries for garnish, cut off stem ends of remaining berries so they are no more than 1 1/2" tall. Arrange, cut ends down, on crust, refrigerate. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk; beat well. Add lime juice; blend well.
  3. Pour into prepared crust, covering strawberries. Refrigerate overnight (it will taste great). Whip cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and vanilla and whip until stiff and glossy.
  4. Using a pastry bag with a decorating tip, pipe a lattice design on top of the pie, or just place neat spoonfuls across pie. Garnish with the reserved strawberries and lime slice. Enjoy!

A couple of blues fans here. Loved your pie, Sharon, and the story of how you got the recipe. I'll bet B.B. King, from Mississippi himself, would enjoy a slice of this wonderful pie ;-) I've got a big strawberry patch and when I saw this pie it went to the top of my list. Unfortunately I couldn't find chocolate graham crackers at the store and so I used a pre-made oreo crust which worked fine. However I'll make the real crust next time as I'm sure it is best that way. Thanks for a great summer pie.

We really enjoyed this strawberry pie & look forward to making it again when local strawberries are at their peak! The cream cheese, condensed milk & lime made a great combination! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]
