1/4 cup margarine, softened
3 Tbsps. brown sugar

1 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup farmer cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 pint sliced strawberries
or whole blueberries

USE: 9 inch pie pan
YIELDS: 8 servings

Preheat oven to 375ᅵ.

GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST: Crush graham crackers in blender until finely ground. Place crumbs in a large bowl. Add margarine and sugar and combine well. Press firmly into pan on sides and bottom. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.

FILLING: In a large bowl combine cheese, sour cream, honey and vanilla. Beat well. Pour filling into cooled crust. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight.

Thaw pie in refrigerator for 1 hour before serving. Garnish generously with fresh strawberries or blueberries.

Literally means "fit." Commonly used to describe foods which are permitted by Jewish dietary laws, but is also used to describe religious articles (such as a Torah scroll or Sukkah) which meet the requirements of Jewish law.
Also known as “Chabad,” Lubavitch is the name of a Chassidic Group founded in the 1770s. “Lubavitch” is the name of the Belarusian city where four of the Chabad Rebbes (leaders) were based. Today, the movement is based in Brooklyn, New York, with branches worldwide. Two of the most fundamental teachings of Chabad are the intellectual pursuit of understanding the divine and the willingness to help every Jew who has a spiritual or material need.
