Strawberry Cream Pie

I’m so excited that berries are back in season! Strawberries and raspberries are definitely some of my favorite fruits, so I love any excuse to bake with them. This strawberry pie that I’m sharing today is the perfect pie for Summer BBQ’s and I’ll even make it for Thanksgiving if I can find fresh strawberries. The bigger and juicer the strawberries, the better! The flaky crust pairs so well with the sweet strawberry flavor and the richness of the cheesecake filling gives it that perfect creamy texture. So next time you pick up ripe strawberries at the store, don’t skip out on making my favorite strawberry pie recipe. It’s SO good!

If you’re in a hurry, you can always use a pre-made pie crust and strawberry glaze. I do love a good graham cracker crust with this strawberry pie as well…it tastes just as delicious! When making the pie recipe, I used all fresh ingredients and the new Dash of That white pie dish and measuring cups found at Kroger. Dash of That is a product line for people who love to cook and entertain using tools that offer modern function and appeal. The line includes high quality cookware, bakeware, prep and serve ware at an accessible price point. Available at Kroger and Fred Meyer/Marketplace stores.

Tips to make this Strawberry Pie extra special

  • Use fresh ripe strawberries. You want them to be red and juicy
  • For a thicker crust, use my homemade pie crust recipe. I cut it in half.
  • For a little extra boost in flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract in the cream mixture with the lemon zest.
  • Add whipped cream to the top of the strawberry cream pie with a piece of mint for a decorative touch

This homemade Fresh Strawberry Pie is made with a flaky crust, cheesecake filling and is bursting with fresh strawberries. One of our favorite Summer desserts!



  • baked pie crust (completely cooled)
  • 2 pounds strawberries (washed, hulled and dried)
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened (1 block)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar (divided)
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Zest from 1 lemon (optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 ounces strawberry gelatin (1 package)


  1. Combine the cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar in a large bowl. Beat until smooth. Add the whipping cream and beat on medium-high speed until a peak forms. Add freshly grated lemon zest if desired. Spread onto the bottom of the cooled pie crust.
  2. Place the strawberries on top of the cream cheese layer. I like to layer two rows of sliced strawberries and one row of whole strawberries, however you could add all sliced to make it easier.
  3. In a small sauce pan, heat the water, sugar and cornstarch over medium heat. Stir constantly. Once it has come to a boil, cook an additional 1-2 minutes, or until it has become clear and thick. Remove from heat and stir in gelatin. Stir for one minute, or until the gelatin has dissolved. Then pour evenly over the top of the strawberries, making sure they all get coated with the glaze.

  4. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, or until it has set. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Slice and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Feel free to use a store bought or homemade pie crust. I halved my easy pie crust recipe

I like to freeze my bowl and beaters before making the whipped topping. It speeds up the process. You can also buy a store bought strawberry glaze if you’d like to, however I prefer the homemade :)

    True that FRESH garden strawberries make all the difference here. I drive past a farm that sells them in little pint containers, and they are the best. they have spoiled me for those “factory farm”, out-of-season strawberries!

    I made this today and my family absolutely loved it. It is a new favorite pie. Thank you for a fantastic recipe.

  13. Would also love to know this Mary Jane. Also,could carbs,sugar,fiber,calories,etc. be listed at the end of this and other recipes? It would help diabetics immensely .

  14. Thank you so much or responding,and adding nutrition facts to recipes. I know this will help me and many others. By the way, that strawberry pie is delicious !! Tx again !

  15. Great  looking  pie ! Is the strawberry  gelatine  just  regular  jello  or is more  specific ? I live  on an  island  in Greece  and I can  only  find  clear  gelatin  and strawberry  jello .

  16. After stirring in the gelatin the mixture is still hot. Should it be room temperature before pouring over the strawberries and cold cream cheese mixture?

    • It’s cools a little bit while I am adding the strawberries to the pie, but it is definitely warm when I pour it over the strawberries and cream cheese mixture! :)

  17. YUM! I love a good strawberry pie! Looks delicious!

  18. I just got a bunch of strawberries at the farmer’s market. This will be perfect! I also love the cheesecake filling!

  19. Those strawberries are everything! Wow!!

  20. This is going to be the perfect dessert for my Memorial Day BBQ!

  21. Thia pie looks totally irresistible! A winner for summer dessert!

  22. Oh wow! This would definitely WOW a crowd!
