Impressive as it looks, this dessert is really easy to prepare. I make it often when strawberries are at their peak. My husband thinks it's terrific, and I receive compliments when I serve the pie to guests. —Dorothy Bateman, Carver, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 11 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled
