How to Make Strawberry Pie

This easy, no-bake strawberry pie recipe uses store-bought pie crust and fresh strawberries with a layer of cream cheese hidden between the strawberries and crust.


– 1 deep dish frozen pie crust – 8 oz cream cheese – 1/2 cup powdered sugar – 2 tbsp milk, any milk, can be dairy free – 2 lb fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped into quarters – 1 cup sugar – 1/2 cup cold water – 3 tbsp cornstarch

Bake pie crust according to package directions and set aside to cool.

Using the whisk attachment on a handheld or standing mixer, whip together cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and milk for at least 3 minutes. It should be light and airy. Taste and add more powdered sugar if desired to achieve a thicker texture.

Add 1 cup of the prepared strawberries to a medium-sized saucepan and mash. Add the sugar and cook until sugar begins to dissolve.

In a separate bowl, combine water and cornstarch. Add the cornstarch mixture to the sugar/strawberry mixture and cook over medium heat for about ten minutes, or until the mixture thickens and becomes translucent.

Remove from heat and add the remaining strawberries, mixing to coat them.

Spread the cream cheese mixture in the bottom of the cooled pie crust.

Top with the strawberry mixture and spread evenly.

Let sit in fridge for 2-3 hours, or until cool and set.

Slice and serve.
