I’m not sure how I’ve lived the life of a food blogger for 3 1/2 years now and have failed to share this fabulous recipe with you thus far. The very notion that I would keep it to myself is verging on scandalous and sort of rude. Truly. It’s not that I wanted to hoard it for myself or anything like that! I just got busy with life and other pies…
Speaking of life and pies…have any of you seen The Life Of Pi, yet? Not that it has anything to do with my life, or this pie…I was just curious. Hoping to see it soon with my kidlets. Anybody out there giving it two thumbs up? Half a thumb up? One up, one down? What are your thoughts.
Excuse me for not paying attention to the subject at hand. Let’s talk some more about Strawberry White Chocolate Pie, good heavens! Here are some important things for you to consider.
This is my most favorite pie of all time.
I have been making this pie for years and years.
When February hits and strawberries start to become available, I get giddy with thoughts of making this pie.
The want to marry Strawberries and White Chocolate.
I may have served this pie to my family for dinner. (Not WITH dinner, just FOR dinner. Like, as the main course.)
Please do not turn me into the authorities.
Let’s make it, man. You, me and Your Life (and love) of Pie.

PRINT RECIPE WITH PICTURE
Time: 30 min prep + 1 hour refrigeration
Yield: 1 pie
Recipe adapted from Taste of Home
1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs
5 T butter, melted
12 ounces cream cheese, softened (1 1/2 packages)
2 C powdered sugar
1/2 C white chocolate chips
1 1/2 T orange juice (fresh please)
2 C cool whip
dash of salt
1 pound strawberries, sliced
3 T white chocolate chips
1. Grab some graham crackers (a little more than one package should do it) and toss them into a small food processor (I used my Ninga blender). Grind them into fine crumbs. You need 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs.
5. Pour 1/2 cup white chocolate chips into a small bowl. Pop it into the microwave and melt the chips for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval. Once the chips have melted, set the bowl aside allowing the chocolate to cool just a bit.
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh orange juice,
10. Melt 3 more tablespoons of white chocolate in the microwave. Make sure to only heat them for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval.
11. Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the berries.
12. Pop your beautiful pie into the fridge to chill for 1 hour before serving.
