in a pickle moments for MOM

Well first... we have to give a shout out to all our new pickle peeps in the heart of Texas... the Austin Food and Wine Festival was simply SPLENDIFEROUS!  Thank you Austin... we hope we gave you something to think about when you are in a pickle!

Next up... we are in our own back yard this weekend at BRIT in Fort Worth from 10 to 2 or catch us in Dallas at the White Rock Lake Market Lakeside from 8 to 1 OR drop by St. Michael's Farmer's Market in Dallas from 8 until noon.  Some really wonderful venues folks and we will be there with great little gifts for MOM.  We are only one week away from that special day and why not give her something that will please her palate like in a pickle's strawberry vanilla jam pie...
Here's the recipe enjoy with your MOM...

3 ounces of dark chocolate pieces, divided
1 TBL butter
1 (9 in) pastry shell, baked
2 pkgs (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream (non fat)
3 TBL sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 to 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
1/3 cup iap strawberry vanilla jam, melted

In a large saucepan, melt the butter and 2 oz. of the chocolate pieces over low heat stirring constantly... when mixture has melted brush over and the sides of the pie shell and chill for 30 minutes in fridge.  In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Spread over the pie shell and cover and chill for two hours.  Arrange the fresh strawberries over the filling and brush with the melted jam.  Melt the remaining chocolate pieces and drizzle over the top of the pie.  Yields: 6-8 servings
