Strawberry Lemonade Icebox Pie

I was watching The Chew, a great show by the way, the other day and they made this delicious looking pie. I haven't ever had a strawberry lemonade pie so I figured I would give it a shot. Its best eaten refrigerated not frozen.

Recipe Source: The Chew

2 cups Graham Crackers, crumbled
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Water
3/4 cup Sugar
2 pints Strawberries, 1 pint only hulled and 1 pint hulled and sliced into coins
2 - 8oz pkgs Cream Cheese, softened to room temp
2 cups Heavy Cream, beaten to stiff peaks

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the graham crackers and butter and press into a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden and set.

2. Combine the lemon juice, water, and sugar in a small saucepot and stir until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat, allow to cool completely.  In a blender, combine the pint of the whole hulled strawberries and the simple syrup. Measure out 3/4 of a cup of this mixture. 

3. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese and the 3/4 cup of the strawberry mixture and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. 

4. Crumble into each mason jar a layer of graham cracker crust, and then lay a layer of strawberry coins. Add a layer of the cream cheese and more strawberry coins until pie is full. Place in the fridge at least 2 hours. Add a dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry coin.
