Strawberry Pie

Strawberries are my favorite berry and I love the freshness of this strawberry pie and the twang of the cream cheese.

1 prepared 9 inch gram cracker crust pie shell
1 small box strawberry jello
1 – 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 Tbs. lemon juice
1 medium container of Cool Whip
1 cup crushed strawberries

Desolve strawberry jello in 1 cup of boiling water.  Let cool, refrigerated, until partially set.

Mix together softened cream cheese with sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Fold in Cool Whip, jello mixture, and strawberries. Mix well and mound into gram cracker crust.  Refrigerate until set.

Salmon Spread

My sister-in-law, Merry, shared this salmon spread with me.  It is easy to make and very good and can be used with  crackers as a spread, dip, or piped onto the crackers to make the appetizer.

1 1lb. can of salmon
8 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke
3 Tbs. finely grated onion

Drain, debone, and remove any skin from salmon.  Put into a mixing bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Serve with Ritz or other buttery cracker.
