Strawberry Cheesecake Pie (No Bake)

This turned out so delicious! My husband was raving about how good it was. The only change I made was that I used a graham cracker crust instead of a regular pie crust. Cheesecake always needs a graham cracker crust! I was unsure about how the strawberry glaze was going to be but it was fine! I will make this again, and soon! One important discovery, now that I have made this several times.

I couldn't figure out why the cheesecake filling was coming out lumpy. I figured out that you have to beat the softened cream cheese (I softened it on low in the microwave) and the sugar together FIRST before you add the lemon juice and the eggs. Otherwise you get lumpy bits of cream cheese in your filling, instead of it being a nice, smooth, creamy filling.
