This elegant and light dessert tastes best on the day that it is made. Whole strawberries look the best, but sliced berries are easier to cut and eat.

Ingredients

3/4 package (6 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup heavy cream, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 baked 9-inch graham cracker crust
2 cups strawberries, hulled
4 square (4 ounces total) bittersweet chocolate, melted

Instructions

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and vanilla until blended and light. Set aside. In a separate chilled bowl, whip the cream until it doubles in volume. Continue beating on high speed while adding the sugar a little at a time. Add the cream cheese mixture and beat briefly, or just until combined. Pour the mixture into the piecrust and cover with the berries. Drizzle with the melted chocolate. Refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 4 hours before serving.
