Seriously Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie {no bake}
Use summer's sweet berries for this creamy no-bake pie. Leave small strawberries whole.
  • 25 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 6 ounces ⅓-less fat cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar-free strawberry jam
  • 1 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and halved
  1. Finely ground chocolate wafer cookies in a food processor. Melt the bittersweet chocolate in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds. Add melted chocolate and canola oil to food processor and pulse until combined. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Freeze until set, approximately 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and extract on medium speed until smooth. Gently fold in whipped topping. Spread mixture on top of crust.
  3. Place fruit spread in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on high for 10 seconds, until softened. Whisk in extract and lemon juice until smooth. Add berry halves and toss to combine. Arrange berries over pie. Chill for 30 minutes before serving.
