Strawberries and Cream Pie

So I made this dessert for Valentine's Day. I have no idea why it has taken me so long to post it.  It was the perfect Valentine's Day treat!  This recipe is adapted from Chef in Training.

1 chocolate graham crust
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
8-12 strawberries (cut in thin slices)

In a bowl beat the whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks.  In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese until it's light and fluffy. Add in the sugar and extract.  Fold the cream cheese mixture into the whipped cream.  Evenly spread the mixture into the pie crust.  Fan out the strawberries on top and refrigerate the pie for at least 3 hours before serving.
