Two berries are better than one, and the chefs at Felix Jam, the most popular lingonberry jam in Sweden and the USA, greet the first strawberries of spring with a special recipe for No-Bake Strawberry-Lingonberry Pie. Full of juicy strawberries with a tart-sweet lingonberry glaze and a crunchy chocolate cookie crust, this pie looks just as fantastic as it tastes!
No-Bake Lingonberry-Strawberry Pie
2 cups crushed chocolate graham crackers (approx. 10 oz.)
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
3 teaspoons canola oil
6 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups frozen low-fat whipped topping, thawed
2 tablespoons lingonberry jam
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 pound small strawberries, hulled and cut in half
Place cookies in food processor; process until finely ground. Place chopped chocolate in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50 percent power (to prevent burning) for 45 seconds or until chocolate melts, stirring every 15 seconds. Add melted chocolate and oil to food processor; process until well combined. Gently press mixture into bottom and up sides of 9” pie plate or removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray. Place in freezer 15 minutes or until set.
Place cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl; beat with mixer at medium speed until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread over bottom of crust. Freeze for 30 minutes before serving. (Or freeze overnight and thaw 30 mins before serving).
Before serving: place Felix Lingonberries in large microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 10 seconds until softened. Add lemon juice; stir with whisk until smooth. Add strawberry halves; toss to combine, then arrange over pie.
