A delightful addition to that Friday night family pizza. Found this at Guide to Southern Food. If using fresh strawberries, mash, sprinkle with sugar, cover, refrigerate for 2 hours, and add 1/4 cup water when cooking. I had unsweetened frozen strawberries and added 3 packets of splenda while cooking.
- 4 ounces butter (1 stick)
- 1⁄4 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄3 cup lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 pints frozen strawberries, in juice
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- Melt butter, mix with confectioners sugar.
- Add flour, mix well.
- Pat out in pizza pan.
- Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned.
- Beat cream cheese and condensed milk together.
- Add lemon juice and vanilla.
- Pour over cooked crust.
- Combine frozen strawberries and cornstarch in medium saucepan (or fresh, mashed, sugared strawberries, 2 tablespoons water and cornstarch).
- Cook over medium heat, stirring, until thickened (about 5 minutes).
- Cool and spread over cream cheese filling.
- Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
Found this a Delicious dessert.I will have a full review on www.thepizzafetish.com very soon.
I haven't actually tasted this recipe yet, but I made it and took it to a Mother's Day picnic the other day and received a lot of compliments on it. I did make a couple of changes - I made the crust in a pie pan, and only used half of the filling. I'm going to make another crust this morning and use up the extra filling.
I used a sugar cookie dough for the crust (saw it used in a similar recipe, but liked the look of your filling recipe better). Did everything else as you have written, then drizzled melted chocolate (thinned with a little shortening) over the top of the whole thing. It got lots of oohs and ahhs at dessert time. Thanks!
