Strawberry Super Pie

I love reading those series where there are lots of books, and you can really enjoy the characters.  This recipe came from a series by Diane Mott Davidson--a mystery series where the leading character, Goldy, is a caterer.  The books all contain recipes that Goldy is making for her clients.   This recipe is a great addition to any BBQ, or summertime dinner.  I will definitely be making it for our 4th of July BBQ.

3/4 c. melted butter
1 1/2 c. flour
1 T. Confectioners sugar
3/4 c. chopped nuts
Combine all ingredients.  Press into the bottom and sides of a pie pan.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.

Now wasn't that easy?  No rolling out dough..and it is yummy!

1 1/4 c. whipped cream, whipped
1/4# cream cheese
3/4 t. vanilla
1/2 c. confectioners sugar
Blend cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until it is very smooth.  Then fold in the whip cream.
Pour this filling over your cooled crust.

2# strawberries--I like to either quarter of half mine
1/2 c. water
1 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
Put all ingredients into a medium sized saucepan.  Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a simmer, and simmer until the sauce thickens.  Cool slightly and pour over filling.  Refrigerate until serving time.
