No-Bake Strawberry Pie | Elevate your Summer Berries with the delicious Chocolate Crusted No-Bake Pie

Elevate your spring berries with this delicious, no-bake pie.  Two things really make this pie fabulous: 1) chocolate crust and 2) the berry glaze; I repeat chocolate crust.   Something about the bright, sweet berries atop a creamy filling and then the wonderful contrast of the semi-sweet chocolate pairings. It’s perfect, easy, and would be great with a multitude of fruits.

As for the glaze it uses strawberry jam, lemon juice & chambord liqueur to create a light, syrupy and delicious addition.  It melts over the creamy filling and adds an uninterpretable delightfulness to the pie.

NO-BAKE STRAWBERRY PIE

DIRECTIONS: Place chocolate wafers in a food processor, and process until finely ground. Place the chopped chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH for 45 seconds or until chocolate melts, stirring every 15 seconds. Add melted chocolate and oil to processor; process until well combined. Gently press the mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate or removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray. Place in freezer 15 minutes or until set.

2. Place cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread over bottom of crust. Place fruit spread in a large microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 10 seconds or until softened. Add Chambord and juice; stir with a whisk until smooth. Add berry halves; toss to combine. Arrange berry halves over pie. Chill for 30 minutes before serving.

I served the remainder a couple days later and it was still divine.  Another delicious little ditty from Cooking Light: A New Way to Cook Light.
