I do believe I found my favorite pie! I always say I’m not much of a “sweets” eater, and I’m not for the most part. I can take it or leave it. But I’ve also said I don’t have to worry so much about what to make with desserts or treats because it’ll get eaten (usually).
This will so not even come close to be a “good for you” sort of pie. I did use fat free cream cheese and there are fresh strawberries. But the marshmallow cream is what does it. It added THE best flavor to this pie by far.
1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 jar (13 oz) marshmallow creme
4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 container (12 to 14 oz) strawberry pie glaze
1 Heat oven to 450°F. Make 1 pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie plate. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
2 Unroll remaining pie crust on work surface. With desired cookie cutters, cut shapes from crust. Place on ungreased cookie sheet; bake 6 to 8 minutes or until light brown. Cool.
3 In medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Stir in marshmallow creme. In large bowl, mix strawberries and pie glaze. Reserve 1 cup strawberry mixture; set aside. Spoon about 1/3 of the marshmallow mixture into pie crust; top with remaining strawberry mixture, and the remaining 2/3 marshmallow mixture. Top with 1 cup reserved strawbery mixture. Arrange cut outs over filling. Cover; refrigerate at least 8 hours or until set but not firm. Store covered in refrigerator.

So the waiting part. Yeah, not so good with that. I let it sit for….oh two hours. I had to take my pictures first and then cut a piece. When the directions say wait for 8 hours, it does need to wait for 8 hours. However, I didn’t mind one bit that it wasn’t set when I ate it. I decided then that this was my favorite pie!!!
Loved, loved, loved it.
