Fresh strawberry pie is always a favorite, but a strawberry crostata is just as easy and somehow manages to be even prettier!
Servings 6 servings
- 1 1/2 pounds strawberries
- 2 tablespoons sugar for sprinkling
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 pie crust storebought or homemade
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Hull and slice strawberries. Sprinkle with sugar and set aside.
Mix together cream cheese, flour, sugar and vanilla.
Line large baking sheet with parchment paper and place the pie crust on the parchment paper. Using an off-set spatula, spread the cream cheese mixture on the pie crust leaving a one inch border around the edge.
Pile the strawberries on top of the cream cheese mixture. Work your way around the pie crust folding the edges up every one inch or so.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool and serve at room temperature or slightly warm.
