Strawberry pie that sticks to a girls lips but not a girls hips

Just made a great strawberry pie and like most of my recipe posts - this one is easy! Are you noticing a trend?

3 Tablespoons of Butter
12 Ounces Crushed Graham Crackers

12 Ounces (1 container) frozen fat-free or lite whipped topping, thawed
8 Ounces of Greek Yogurt/Cream Cheese (I purchased this from Kroger)
3 Tablespoons No Sugar Added Strawberry Jelly or Jam (I used some from a local farmers market)

1 Cup Fresh Cut Strawberries
4 Ounces Water
3 Tablespoons No Sugar Added Strawberry Jelly or Jam

Melt butter and mix with graham crackers to form crust in the bottom of a pie plate.

Soften cream cheese. Mix with whipped topping and jelly. Once mixed to a smooth consistency, pour the mixture on top of the crust. Place in freezer for at least one hour.

Mix strawberries, water, and jam in a blender.

I keep this pie in the freezer and remove about an hour to thirty minutes before serving. I like to store the topping in a separate dish in the refrigerator and place on the individual slices of pie before serving.

I'd post pics of my food but I often forget to take one before we start eating or they don't always look pretty enough for pictures. They always taste good though! This pie is slightly tart and not overly sweet. Using the lower sugar, lower fat items keep the calories down too.

More to come from the mind of ...
