  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter , melted
For the filling:
  • 12 ounces cream cheese , at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream (homemade or store bought, e.g., Cool Whip)
For the topping:

Instructions
For the crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Position the rack to the middle of the oven.

Refrigerate for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until thickened. Stir in the sliced strawberries, then layer evenly over the filling in the pan.
