Mouth Watering Strawberry Pie

I made this Mouth Watering Strawberry Pie, Monday for our Independence Day dessert. I thought it was fitting with the red and white. My daughter told me that we should have sprinkled some blueberries on it to add the blue. Good idea, but we didn't have any blueberries.

This is a dessert that I got with my electric bill. Every month with our bills, the power company includes a recipe. Hmmmm, is that to lessen the sting of it a little? I have to say that I do actually look forward to opening my electric bill........just to see what the recipe is! This is one I saved because it sounded so good! I do think the name of this dessert is a little misleading because this is not a typical strawberry pie. It's more of a cream cheese, strawberry dessert. The dessert as a whole is very tasty, but my favorite part is the crust! Pecans and brown sugar ! Very tasty! Get the recipe below!

Check out Miz Helen's Country Cottage and This Chick Cooks, where I'm sharing this yummy recipe today!
