Two-Ply Strawberry Pie



In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, lemon juice, and pudding.
Whisk until thoroughly combined.
Slowly add about 1/3 of the mixture to the cream cheese and beat until smooth, scraping the bowl as needed.
Slowly add the remaining pudding mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the graham cracker crust and smooth out the top.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes before preparing the top layer.
To prepare the top layer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth (preferably using the whisk attachment on your mixer).
The mixture must be absolutely smooth.
Slowly add the thawed strawberries and their juice, scraping the bowl as needed.
Add the vanilla and continue mixing until combined.
Finally, add the whipped topping until just combined.
Spoon the mixture on top of the bottom layer and decoratively swirl the top.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the pie has set up completely.
