A wonderfully easy recipe that even my young sister-in-law can make. She isn't the best cook in the world because she is new at it. But her family was impressed when she made this simple pie.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix cream cheese, white sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until smooth. Stir 3/4 cup mashed strawberries into cream cheese mixture.

  • Beat heavy cream and confectioners' sugar in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the cream will form sharp peaks. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture until evenly mixed; fold in remaining 1/4 cup sliced strawberries.

  • Spoon strawberry mixture into graham cracker crust. Chill at least 3 hours before serving.

Cook's Note:

Garnish with additional strawberries and fresh mint.

Great recipe with whole food ingredients. It's perfect recipe for substitutions for those with allergies. I used vegan cream cheese and whipped coconut cream. I separated and whipped the cream from a can of Thai Kitchen's coconut milk. And any brown rice flour and ground almond recipe will do for the crust. We all loved it. Read More

YUM!!!!! Guilt free healthy dessert! I subbed the 1/4 cup sugar for maple syrup and eliminated the sugar in the whipped cream and it was heavenly! My whole family loved it! Read More

I have made this four times in the past 3 weeks for different occasions and everybody has loved it! They all wanted the recipe. My only change was that I put it in an Oreo crust, and personally, I think it makes for an even tastier pie! My husband says it's a definite "keeper". Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Yummy. I drained the juice from the mashed strawberries before adding to mixture because someone commented that it was a little runny. Turned out perfect! Read More

Best strawberry pie I've ever eaten! It was so simple to put together and I used a nilla wafer pie crust. DELISH!!You can sub pre-made whipped topping if you don't want to make the whipped cream but honestly why would you? It took 5 minutes to make the whipped cream and tasted 10 times better. YUM YUM!
