Cheesecake Pie

Serves 8
You'll need: 1 pie crust (thawed from frozen), 3 eight oz packages of cream cheese (room temp), 1/2 cup regular sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp flour, 3 eggs, 1/3 cup dried cranberries (cherry or orange flavored), 1/4 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed), 1/2 tsp orange zest, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 3/4 cup of fresh strawberries (thinly sliced).
How to prepare: Pierce pie crust with fork 4-6 times and set aside. Combine all other ingredients (except fresh strawberries) in a bowl and mix on med speed for 5 min. Add strawberries to batter and stir them in lightly with a spatula (not mixer). Pour filling into pie shell. Bake for 40 min on 375 degrees F (until middle sets and edges are lightly browned). Note, if you have extra strawberries, slice them thinly and place in small bowl with 1 tsp of regular sugar. After pie cools, line the edge of pie with these strawberries as a garnish. Enjoy!
