No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake


8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar

1 cup sour cream

2 tsp vanilla extract

8 oz prepared whipped topping, thawed

1 prepared graham cracker crust

1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and halved lengthwise


1.  Beat the cream cheese until smooth with an electric mixer.  Gradually beat in the sugar.  Beat in the sour cream and vanilla until just combined.. Fold in the whipped topping. Scrape mixture into the pie crust.  (There may be some filling left over. If so, reserve it to be decoratively piped on to the top of the pie).  Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
