Frozen Strawberry Pie

Mmmm...strawberries, cream cheese and cool whip in an Oreo crust. This delicious, refreshing no-bake dessert is sure to make repeat appearances this summer.

This recipe makes enough for two pies. Share one with a friend or neighbor, or keep both for yourself! It's also very easy just to halve this recipe and make one pie. (that's what I did...)

This calls for a chocolate crust. You can buy a pre-made one, or you can make one yourself. I had Oreos on hand, and decided it would be better to turn them into a pie than to have them calling my name from within the cupboard. For each Oreo crust, you need two cups of Oreo crumbs and two Tbsp. of melted butter. Two cups of crumbs is about 18 cookies, or exactly ONE ROW from the package. (Guess they'll still be calling my name after all, the remaining 36...)

You can crush the Oreos by placing them in a large ziploc and pounding with a rolling pin, or you can use your food processor or chopper. Then add the melted butter, and mix so that all the crumbs become moistened. Pat into a 9" pie pan. Make sure you get the crumbs up the sides too!

Then, beat the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar together til creamy. Add the chopped strawberries.

You don't need to chop them very carefully, you want them to be "beat up" a bit by the mixer. If the strawberries are in large chunks, they'll be difficult to eat when frozen! Beat the strawberries into the cream cheese until the berries are chopped up a bit and the mixture starts to turn a little pink.

Next, fold in the whipped topping.

Then, pour into the prepared shell.

Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 3-4 hours or until firm. You'll want to remove the pie from the freezer about 20 minutes before you want to serve it so it thaws just enough so that you can cut it easily.
