Strawberries & Cream Pie

This is a great easy dessert recipe for the summer...especially if you have lots of berries lying around. :) I used raspberries instead of strawberries, and it was delicious!

1 c. chocolate chips
3 t. shortening
1 graham cracker crust
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla
1 tub cool whip, thawed
2 c. fresh strawberries, halved

1. Combine chocolate chips & shortening in a bowl & melt in the microwave. Pour 3/4 of mixture into the bottom of the crust & refrigerate until firm.
2. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream & vanilla until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Pour onto crust & refrigerate for 1 hour.
3. Arrange strawberries over pie. Microwave the chocolate (again), and drizzle over pie. Refrigerate until pie is set (overnight).
