Cuisine:dessert, snack, Japanese
20 Strawberry flavored Pocky sticks
8 graham crackers
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons melted (unsalted butter)
8 ounces cream cheese (at room temperature)
1/3 cup 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 ounces whipped cream
8–10 fresh strawberries for topping
5–7 strawberry Pocky sticks (for decorations)
Preheat oven to 350Fº
Put the graham crackers and 20 strawberry Pocky sticks in a blender and blend until you get a powder.
Transfer the powder into a 9 inch pie pan.
Add the sugar, melted butter and mix well with a fork until the mixture looks like wet sand. Press down until the crust is even.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Take the crust out of the oven and let cool to room temperature.
Combine cream cheese and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sour cream and vanilla extract and beat for a few more seconds. Fold in the whipped cream and refrigerate until it’s time to use.
Pour the filling on top of the pie crust and spread evenly. Top with fresh strawberries and break a few pieces of Pocky to make a star in the center. Cut a small circle out of a slice of strawberry and put it in the center of the star. Serve cold.
OR if you’d like to add more strawberry Pocky flavor to the pie, pulverize more Pocky sticks in a blender and sprinkle as topping for the pie!
