The second question people ask when I serve them this pie is, "What's your recipe?" It comes right after their first question—"May I have another slice?"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, melt 2 ounces chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly; spread or brush over the bottom and up the sides of pastry shell. Chill.
  2. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over chocolate layer; cover and chill for 2 hours. Arrange strawberries, tip end up, atop the filling. Brush jam over strawberries. Melt the remaining chocolate and drizzle over all.

This was a good pie; however, i found it tasted more like a cheesecake than a pie. I thought the crust would get "wet" from the strawberries but the choclate formed a nice shield from the filling & topping. next time i think i'd add a touch of almond extract to the filling to give it an extra punch of flavour.

This was so yummy! We love fresh strawberry pie and this is an awesome variation. I substituted non-fat plain yogurt for the sourcream and added a 2 extra tbs sugar to the cream cheese mixture. It lowered the fat considerably without sacrificing any flavor. I love the chocolate layer over the crust, it's like a little chocolate surprise amidst all the strawberries! :D I cut the hulled strawberries in half (they were a little beat up) and piled them in the shell then tried to the brush on the jam. I think next time I'll mix the berries with the melted jam before putting them in the shell. I used Marie's Easy As Pie No Roll Piecrust Easy As Pie No Roll Pie Crust for the shell. Delicious! Thanks for posting!
