I used a store bought graham cracker pie crust (9 inch) and I had some filling left over. I actually made the pudding first and used 1 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 1/2 cup milk and it make it thick and rich more like a thin custard. It also made the pie hold up much better. I let the pudding set up in the fridge while I made the rest of the pie. I piped on the rest of the whipped cream and placed strawberries on for decoration. It was beautiful, and tasted wonderful!

Yummy! My daughter and I made this for our 4th of July Dessert. Here are the changes we made: We used the premade graham cracker crust, added 1 1/2 cups heavy cream & 2 cups whole milk to the pudding and chilled. We made fresh homemade whipping cream in place of the whipped topping. We did not add the sugar to the cream cheese mixture because we sweetened the whipping cream. We also added fresh Raspberries intead of Strawberries and decorated it with both Blueberries and Raspberries for the Holiday. Easy to make! Read More

This is a great recipe very light and sweet. It is great way to feature fresh strawberries. I cut the filling ingredients in half and used a pre-made graham cracker crust. It turned out really well very creamy not too heavy. A wonderful summer dessert. Read More

I luv this so much!!! It has a great mix of flavors! I bake this all the time for partys and there are never any left overs. People are always asking me to bake it for them. I use 2 1/2 cups of graham crackers instead of 1 1/2. I you want the graham crackers to be soft and melt in your mouth lather them butter and push all the graham crackers together (My preference). If you like a crunchy harder texture for graham cracker put less butter then more and crack them in big nickel sized chunks (parents preference). I Used banana pudding and it made it so extremely good. Low fat cream cheese is not to bad either. Its A MUST TRY!! Read More

I prepared this recipe for a cook out and it was great. Very easy to fix. But next time I think I will use less sugar because it was extremely sweet. Read More
