Recipe by Anita Harris
This is oh so good!! It's a great combination of my 2 favorites, strawberries and cream cheese. It makes a light and airy dessert..pretty too! It's also easy and quick to prepare. I found the recipe in the Taste of Home Holiday Recipe collection for Holiday 2004. If you like you can use whatever fruit pie filling you prefer. Prep and cooking times are estimated. Although it must be chilled at least 2 hours.
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup cold milk
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) package vanilla instant pudding mix
- 1 (12 ounce) carton whipped topping, thawed
- 1 1⁄2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 2 (21 ounce) cans strawberry pie filling
