1(6 oz)ready-to-use graham cracker crust
2ounceswhite chocolate baking bar(not white chocolate chips)
1bar (8 oz)cream cheesesoftened
1box (3.4 oz)vanilla instant pudding
Add the white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 20 second intervals, stirring it after each one. * This usually only takes about 40 seconds. If you give it a good stir after 40 seconds, it will melt smoothly together. Don't over melt it, as white chocolate can burn easily.
Smooth the melted white chocolate evenly into the bottom of the graham cracker crust. Gently press the halved strawberries (halved lengthwise) onto the white chocolate. * Place the strawberries with the inside flesh part down in the white chocolate.
Using a stand mixer, or a mixing bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese for 1 minute. Add in the powdered sugar and beat again for 1 minute. * Start at low speed and increase speed as needed.
Add in the whole milk and vanilla instant pudding powder into the cream cheese mixture. Start on low speed, and beat for about 1 minute, increasing speed as needed until it's combined well and there are no lumps.
Pour the cream topping over the strawberries and smooth out the top. Cover the pie with the enclosed plastic lid (from the graham cracker crust) and refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours before slicing and serving.
Add the blueberries and chopped strawberries on top of the pie before slicing and serving it. * You can add the berry topping before the refrigeration time, but I don't recommend it because the berries can bleed color into the cream pie. Save the topping to add after the refrigeration time and before cutting/serving.
White Chocolate Baking Bar : This is NOT white chocolate chips. Don't use those. This is bakers white chocolate. Each bar is 4 ounces, so you will only need to use half of the bar for 2 ounces that the recipe calls for. You can find the baking chocolate near the chocolate chips, usually on the top shelf. Tips : If you don't like white chocolate there are many options. Either leave it out completely, or try using a milk chocolate baking bar or a dark chocolate baking bar instead. Berries : Feel free to use whatever berries you want on top of the pie. We love blueberries + strawberries, but raspberries or blackberries are other great options too. Pudding Mix : For even more white chocolate goodness, try using a box of white chocolate instant pudding mix instead of vanilla. Do not prepare the pudding beforehand. Simply dump in the dry contents from the box.
