Make this a cheesecake flavored pie
Substitute 1 box of cheesecake flavored pudding, 8 ounces cream cheese (softened), and 1-½ cups milk for the pudding portion of this recipe.
Using a hand mixer, blend the cream cheese and pudding mix until creamy. Gradually blend in the milk until creamy and smooth. Proceed as directed in step 7.
Tips and Substitutions
Wash and pat dry the strawberries before using. Any water on the strawberries will prevent the white chocolate from sticking.
Add the sliced strawberries to the top of the white chocolate in the pie shell while the chocolate is still wet (not hardened).
Homemade whipped topping can be substituted for the frozen, thawed whipped topping.
Substitute a graham cracker crust for the regular pie crust
