Strawberry Cheesecake Pie (Sugar Free Option)

I recently made another wonderful sugar-free, low-fat dessert and wanted to share so you can enjoy it too. It's delicious!


BEAUTIFUL FOR THE EYES...TASTY FOR THE TUMMY!

**Recipe for HOMEMADE GLAZE at bottom of this post....


You could even add some blueberries for a 'patriotic flare'...

STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE PIE

1 - 8 oz. pkg. (light) cream cheese, softened
 1-3/4 c. 1% or 2% milk, divided
1 - (4 - serv. size) pkg. (sugar free) instant pudding 
(cheesecake or white chocolate)




4 to 8 oz. lite Cool Whip


1 - 9" graham cracker crust

2 c. fresh strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1/2 pkg - 16 ozs. pkg. (sugar free) strawberry glaze

The S-F glaze is wonderful! 
(And if you need FULL sugar free - make it as pudding instead of a pie...with no crust..or make your own homemade crust with sweetener) 

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.  Add 1/2 c. milk; blend well.
Add remaining milk and instant pudding mix.  Beat for 1 minute.  Stir
in Cool Whip and pour into pie crust. Mix strawberries with 1/2 pkg. of glaze
and spread over pie.  Refrigerate any leftovers. 

Yield: 8 servings

HOMEMADE GLAZE

1-1/2 c. water
2 Tb. cornstarch
1 sm. (4 serv. size) (sugar free) strawberry jello
6 Tb. truvia (or sugar) 

In a small saucepan, combine water and cornstarch; cook until thickened.
Remove from heat; cool slightly; stir in jello and sweetener. Cool before 
mixing with berries; top pie with mixture or add when serving. 
Don't forget to add some Cool Whip or whipped cream.
