  • Place a spoonful of cream cheese filling next to a spoonful of the strawberry mixture onto each of the other 6 rectangles (without the slits), leaving room along the edge. (You can also put down the cream cheese first, and top with the strawberries.)

Notes

  • You can use store-bought crust. It works great! 
  • Make sure you lightly flour the surface you're rolling your pastry on, to avoid sticking.
  • Use a fork to press down the top pastry layer into the bottom. Besides sealing the crust, it makes a lovely rustic edging.
  • If you're looking to REALLY take them up a notch, top with some vanilla bean ice cream.
  • Nutritional information is calculated using refrigerated pie crusts, not a homemade recipe.
