The second question people ask when I serve them this pie is, "What's your recipe?" It comes right after their first question: "May I have another slice?" —Lauretha Rowe, Scranton, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/3 cup strawberry jam, melted

Directions

  1. Unroll crust into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°. 
  2. Line crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack or until edge is golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. 
  3. In a large saucepan, melt 2 oz. chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly; spread or brush over the bottom and up the sides of pastry shell. Chill.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over chocolate layer; cover and chill for 2 hours.
  5. Arrange strawberries over the filling; brush with jam. Melt the remaining chocolate and drizzle over the top.
