SUMMER DREAM STRAWBERRY PIE

Note: This pie goes together quickly but it does need to chill for at least an hour before being cut to serve.

1 (9-inch) Graham cracker pie shell
1 tbsp room temperature water
1 pkg unsweetened strawberry drink mix (ie Kool-Aid)
1 tbsp strawberry ice cream topping
3 pkgs (3-oz each) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whipping cream, whipped
2 tbsp hot fudge, warmed for drizzle
fresh strawberrys for garnish, if desired

Combine the water and strawberry drink mix in a small bowl until dissolved completely.  Stir in the ice cream topping.

In a large mixing bowl, beat both cream cheese blocks powdered sugar,vanilla, and the strawberry mixture together until fluffy.  Gently fold in the whipped cream.  Spread the filling into the Graham cracker crust and chill for at least an hour or until set.

To serve, cut pie into 6 to 8 wedges.  Place pie wedge on plate and drizzle with the hot fudge and garnish with a strawberry if desired.
