Shortbread Crust
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, sliced and softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Tampico Citrus Punch
Whipped Cream
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp Tampico Citrus Punch
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
Citrus Cream Filling
  • 2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Tampico Citrus Punch
  • 1 ½ cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • Strawberries, sliced or whole
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, blend flour, butter, powdered sugar, and Tampico Citrus Punch until the dough forms a ball. Press the dough into a 10” pie plate in an even layer. With a fork, poke holes in the dough (this will help let some of the air escape from the crust while it’s baking). Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. With a rubber spatula, press the crust down lightly (it will have puffed up slightly while baking). Allow to cool.
  3. With a mixer, whip heavy whipping cream until it begins to thicken, forming soft peaks. Add in powdered sugar, lemon zest, and Tampico Citrus Punch. Whip until it forms stiff peaks. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in powdered sugar, lemon zest and Tampico Citrus Punch. Fold 2 cups of whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture (reserve the rest of the whipped cream for the topping).
  5. Spread sliced strawberries in an even layer on the bottom of the shortbread crust. Spread citrus cream filling over the top of the strawberries. Spread the remaining whipped cream over the filling. Top with strawberries.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  7. Enjoy!
