To make strawberries and cream dessert squares, combine 1 pouch of sugar cookie mix, 1 egg and 1/2 cup of softened butter, and press it into a glass baking pan. While the crust bakes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes, melt 1 cup of white vanilla baking chips in a microwave, and mix them with 1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese. Spoon the mixture onto the cooled crust, and chill it. Meanwhile, simmer 1 cup of crushed fresh strawberries in a saucepan with 1/2 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 1/3 cup of water. Once the mixture thickens and cools, add 3 cups of sliced fresh strawberries, and pour it over the cream cheese filling. Chill the dessert for another hour before serving.

In a separate bowl, whip 1 cup of whipping cream into peaks, and stir it into the cream cheese. Layer the mixture into the pie shell, and top it with 2 pints of sliced strawberries.
