fat-free cream cheese,
To prepare filling, in a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, lemon peel, and juice until creamy. Spread mixture into pie shell and top with fresh strawberries. In a saucepan, cook frozen strawberries, remaining sugar, and cornstarch until bubbly then cook two minutes more. Cool completely; pour over strawberries in pie shell. Chill.
Preheat oven at 350. To prepare crust, prepare a 9" pie pan with cooking spray and flour. Place flour in a bowl and drizzle with oil. Use a pastry blender to evenly distribute the oil and produce a mixture the consistency of coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle on the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue mixing until you can gather the dough into a ball. Roll the dough into a 11" circle onto a floured surface. Patch any cracks that may form, but otherwise try not to handle the dough more than necessary. Transfer the dough to prepared pie pan. Trim the dough, leaving a 1" overhang. Crimp the overhanging dough into a decorative edge. Cook the crust 20 minutes.
