I have been baking this pie since my daughters were very small. They are now 40 and 42. So as you can see, I have been making this pie for a long time. It is always the one they request when we have BBQs in the summertime. I even make it for them in the winter when and if I can find fresh strawberries. I think you will like it also. My grand-daughter said I should name it 'To Die For Strawberry Cream Pie.'

  • Beat cream in a separate bowl with an electric mixer just until it begins to thicken; add cream cheese mixture and continue beating until thick. Pour cream mixture into baked pie crust; top with strawberry mixture. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.

Cook's Note:

I slice the bigger berries and leave the smaller ones whole. You can find strawberry glaze in the produce department.

I made this delicious pie for my dad’s birthday. I made this as written using a Pillsbury® Pie Crust. It does need to be made AT LEAST an hour before serving so that the cream layer can set up. Otherwise, your pieces will not cut nicely. My pie set for an hour and a half and I could not get a pretty piece of pie. After the pie was in the refrigerator all night, the cream cheese layer had time to set properly and the pieces cut and served very nicely. With strawberries just starting to appear in our groceries, I know I will be making this one again. I will plan on making early in the morning, or refrigerate overnight before serving. Read More

I really wanted to like this pie but the cinnamon completely overwhelmed the flavor. My husband agreed with me. I don't think this pie even needs cinnamon in it. Next time I will omit it all together and try it again. **update 3/25/16 - I've made this dessert many times now without the cinnamon and it is perfect!!! Read More

I selected this recipe because I sent someone to the store and instead of getting brick cream cheese they got strawberry cream cheese spread in a tub. I needed to regroup and could not make the cheesecake I had planned to make. So this recipe looked like something that I could adapt using the spread. It worked. I used 2 tubs (8 oz) of the strawberry cream cheese spread added all the other ingredients except the vanilla and the cinnamon (I added a TBSP of Chambord) and made my own crust and glaze. All I can say is this recipe is a keeper. Even though I changed this recipe out of necessity I bet the original is delicious too. Thanks for the recipe Paniece. Read More

Excellent! Of course, I'm always a sucker for fresh strawberry pie. I made my own crust b/c the store bought ones taste just like grocery store pie. Hmmm... imagine that! I also made my own glaze and let it be a bit chunky. As a result, the strawberry topping turned out not quite as firm as I'd hoped, but that was no fault of this recipe. I'll just add a bit more cornstarch next time. The cream filling was divine, and as the name of the recipe indicates, this pie truly is "to die for". I'm making another tomorrow to take to a benefit dinner! Read More

Always weight watching and frequently short on time I bought sugarfree strawberry glaze in the produce department used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and picked up a Keebler shortbread crust - mentioned by someone as a tasty alternative to homemade. I halved the cinnamon and used about half of the glaze. The pie was finished in a flash. It traveled well to a Memorial Day picnic and cut cleanly after only a couple of hours of chilling. Most importantly everyone's reaction was the same - "amazing dessert." Amazing quick and pretty healthy!! Thanks for sharing this delicous recipe Paniece. Read More

I did make some changes to this delicious recipe. I couldn't bring myself to using packaged glaze so I made my own. After reading the reviews and the unintentional change in cream cheese I purposely uses strawberry cream cheese to further enhance the strawberry flavor. My six-yr old son is in love with the cream cheese layer! The homemade glaze was a marriage made in Heaven with the sliced berries. Simply delicious!! Read More

Made 2 of these pies for 4th of July! Very easy my only tip is to mix the cream cheese & cinnamon mixture really well before incorporating into the whipped cream. If not you'll have little cinnamon explosions when you eat it. Read More

This pie was delicious! Everyone in my family loved it and was upset that I had only made one. The filling is what made this a special treat. I agree with another review you need to let this pie sit in the refrigerator for longer than an hour. Will defintely make again and again. Read More
