1store-bought pie crust(9-inch pie crust)
1cupheavy whipping cream
1bar (8 oz)cream cheesesoftened
1tablespoonshortening OR oil
1/2cupmilk chocolate chips
Cook pie crust according to package instructions. Let cool completely.
In a small bowl, beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. This will take about 3-4 minutes.
In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add in sugar and vanilla extract. Blend together well.
Using a rubber spatula pour the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Mix well to combine together.
Spread into the cooled pie crust.
Arrange strawberries, cut side down, over top.
Cover the pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours so the pie can thicken and set up.
Right before serving make the chocolate drizzle. In a microwaveable bowl combine shortening or oil and chocolate chips. Microwave for 2 minutes (may need less time) stirring every 30 seconds until silky and melted together.
Drizzle over the strawberries and serve. If you would rather serve the pie with the glaze hardened, refrigerate the pie until the chocolate glaze is hardened. Which won't take long.
Chocolate Glaze : The chocolate drizzle on top will harden up slightly once put on the cold pie. Either use a fork to drizzle the chocolate on top OR put the melted chocolate into a ziploc bag and snip off the corner and drizzle in a circle motion over the strawberries. Strawberries : Cut the strawberries in half the long way. Meaning from the top of the strawberry to the bottom. That way you end up with two halves that are longer/flatter in shape. You don't want to cut the strawberries in half through the middle. Cut from top to bottom. If you prefer smaller chunks then chop the strawberries up small.
