DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and smooth.
  • Spread into the prepared graham cracker crust.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 350 F for 35-40 minutes (Cover crust with a pie shield or a ring of foil if it starts to overbrown).
  • As soon as the pie comes out of the oven, immediately spread the sour cream on top.
  • Cool completely.
  • Place the best looking whole strawberries (tips upward) across the surface of the pie (save some for the topping).
  • Mash any remaining berries and combine with 1 cup water in a small pan; cook for 5 minutes.
  • Pour through a sieve and return the sieved juices back to the pan.
  • Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cornstarch and add to the berry juice, along with lemon juice.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and clear.
  • Add a few drops of red food coloring; let cool.
  • Carefully spoon glaze over the pie, then chill pie well before serving.
