A healthy make-over of my Mom's famous strawberry pie. A sugar cookie crust topped with a luscious cream cheese layer and topped with piles of strawberries. This recipe is low carb, sugar free, and a Trim Healthy Mama S Fuel.

Growing up, our family always looked forward to strawberry season. That meant Mama would be making her delicious strawberry pies. Did we fight over the last piece? Well, I don't know if we need to have that discussion. But I will tell you that my family had some arguing over the last pieces of the make-over pie!
I will warn you. You may want to double the recipe to make TWO pies instead of just one. Every time I have made this it has disappeared within HOURS! Truly!
My Mom's original recipe used a traditional pie crust, a cream cheese and cool whip layer, topped with sliced strawberries and red strawberry glaze. I tried to re-create the glaze by using gelatin to make a glaze, but it didn't work so well. I actually prefer to just use sliced fresh strawberries (and its less steps and fewer ingredients)! That sounds like a winner to me!
So, what do you need for this delicious pie?
¼ Cup Melted Butter
3 Tablespoons Water
½ Cup + 1 Tablespoon Baking Blend
1 Tablespoon Gentle Sweet (Or your favorite powdered sweetener)
8 oz Softened Cream Cheese
2 Tablespoons Gentle Sweet (Or your favorite powdered sweetener)
½ Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Cups Fresh Sliced Strawberries
If you do not have the THM Baking Blend, you can use an equal mix of coconut flour, almond flour, and flax meal.
