Strawberry Cheesecake Pie

Our local store had Driscoll Strawberries on special today. 4 lbs. for 2 dollars.
What a buy. They are great berries and not a spoiled one in the bunch.
Decided to make this strawberry cheesecake pie as it is Father’s Day. I usually have pie crust ready to roll out in the freezer so the crust was easy to make.

1 9 inch baked pie crust
8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup sugar
teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 cups strawberries washed and hulled
8 ounces strawberry jam for the glaze
1/2 Tablespoon cream sherry or other liqueur (optional)

Beat cream cheese, add sugar, lemon zest and juice and beat until combined.
spread in pie crust, arrange berries on top.
Warm jam slightly add cream sherry and spoon over the berries.
Refrigerate until cool and set up.

Garnish with whipped cream
If desired you could use a purchased crumb crust, graham, vanilla wafers or something in that line. Be sure it is for a 9 inch pie.
