Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Bake pie crust in preheated oven until lightly browed, about 5 minutes; allow to cool completely before filling.

  • Beat together Neufchatel cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and milk together in a bowl until slightly thinned; spread with a spatula onto the pie crust.

  • Arrange berries atop the cheese filling in the pie crust with the points pointing upward, pushing down slightly to anchor in the cheese filling. Cover the cheese filling as completely as possible with berries.

  • Pour strawberries glaze evenly over the pie.

  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

Cook's Note:

If using store bought glaze, you may want to put glaze in a pyrex bowl and warm briefly in microwave to achieve a pourable, spoonable consistency.

Wow wow wow! This was the first time I ever made a strawberry pie. I was at the grocery and spotted a container of the strawberry glaze. I decided to try this one because it had no pictures or reviews yet. I decided to make my own graham cracker crust instead of using an store bought. Read More

I've made this recipe a few times and everyone I've made it for raves about it. I used mascarpone cheese instead and it turned out great! Read More

You had me at "Strawberry and pie". YUM. The ONLY thing I do differently is use less of the glaze. I only use enough to lightly coat the berries on top to kind of "gel" things together. This is so refreshing not overly sweet and perfect for any summer get-together. If you like strawberries graham cracker crust and rich creamy cheeses...........then this is for you.:) (P.S.- I know in some areas Neufchatel would be difficult to find. You can use any smooth & creamy cheese. Just add less or more depending on the richness & consistency). Read More

Really tasty and delicious! All I would do is add a bit more sugar to the cream cheese. It was a bit too..."cheesy" for me. Read More

This is very easy and delicious. I made my own graham cracker crust. Used powdered sugar in the cream cheese mixture in place of the granulated sugar and added about a cup of cool whip free for texture. This turns out to be a relatively lower calorie and lower fat dessert with lots of goodness from fresh strawberries. A definite keeper! I will be making this again! Read More

Excellent recipe....only change I made was to use mascarpone cheese and double the strawberries:). I put the glaze in a Baggie cut the tip off and squeezed on to top of pie much easier that way! Read More

Excellent. Bought extra ingredients made 2 pies but after reading some notes saying "too cheesy" I cut cheese in half and it turned out to be wonderful! Read More

This turned out really great. I did a normal pie crust instead of graham cracker but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and it turned out nice and creamy with the strawberries really taking center stage. Read More
