Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Toss together cookie crumbs and melted butter; press into 9-in. (23 cm) pie pan, covering the bottom and up 3/4 in. (2 cm) on the sides. (Note: The sides of this shallow crust do not reach the rim of the pan.) Bake 10 min. Cool completely on wire rack.

  2. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese with brown sugar until light and fluffy. Spread into pie crust. Chill about 1 hr. until firm.

  3. Melt strawberry jam in small saucepan set over medium-low heat for 3 to 5 min. until runny. Cool slightly; toss with strawberries to coat.

  4. Top pie with strawberries. Serve immediately.
