Impressive as it looks, this dessert is really easy to prepare. I make it often when strawberries are at their peak. My husband thinks it's terrific, and I receive compliments when I serve the pie to guests. -Dorothy Bateman, Carver, Massachusetts

"Fantastic! What an easy way to have homemade cheesecake. I topped mine with an early batch of fresh picked Florida strawberries and used the cheesecake/pie as a Thanksgiving dessert. I am sure I will make this again and could even top it with different fresh berries."
