Strawberry Yum Yum Pie

It should be noted that I'm _not_ trying to make the rest of the world fat with the food I'm posting recipes for. Flavorful food, even rich food can be healthy when it's made with good, fresh, ingredients and eaten in proper portions. Having said that, I give you the Strawberry Yum Yum pie, in honor of my youngest sister who adores this treat.

Serves: 8

1 bar of dark chocolate
1 pound fresh strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 powdered sugar
2 bars Philidelphia Cream Cheese (room temperature)
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla

1 9' pie crust (you can use a simple pie crust recipe or get a frozen pie crust from the grocery store.

Do it, do it: Preheat oven to 450. Take pie crust and cut a slit in the center to allow heat to escape. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a mixer beat cream cheese for 1 minute on high. Bring speed down to medium and slowly add powdered sugar, beat until combined. Slowly add 1/3 cup heavy cream. Once all the cream has been added turn the mixer back up to high and beat for 1 minute. Bring speed down and add vanilla, mix until combined. Poor mixture into cooled pie crust and chill for 30 minutes.

Slice strawberries and place in bowl. Cover with sugar and let sit for 15 minutes.

Cover chilled pie with strawberry slices, top with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings.
