Strawberry Delight

Happy 4th of July!  This is the perfect summer time dessert for cookouts or parties! It's so light and refreshing.  This recipe is the fruit version of my Chocolate Delight recipe.

2 lbs fresh strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 8oz cream cheese (softened)
2 cups powdered sugar
16oz cool whip

Heat oven 350. Wash and slice strawberries. Mix them in a bowl with the sugar and lemon juice and set to the side.  Combine the flour and brown sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes then cut into the flour mixture. Press the dough into the bottom of a greased 9x13 dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes then let it cool fully.  Once the crust is cooled, mix together the cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixture. Spread evenly over the crust.  Using a slotted spoon, place the strawberries over the cream cheese mixture allowing some but not all of the juice to make it to the dish. Top with the cool whip and refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving.
