What is in this no bake strawberry cream cheese pie:

Ingredients for strawberry pie:

  • 1 pie crust
  • 6 cups strawberries, hulled and cut into half
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • red food color
  • 1-8 ounce package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Instructions to make a no bake strawberry pie:

  • Heat oven to 425. Prick bottom and sides of the pie pastry thoroughly with a fork.
  • Bake 8 minutes or until light brown, remove from oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack
  • In a small bowl, mash enough strawberries to measure one cup. Save the remaining strawberries.
  • In a medium saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup water and the 1 cup of mashed strawberries, and 2-3 drops of red food color.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils, boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and lemon zest.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on the bottom of the pie crust
  • Pile the remaining strawberries on top of the cream cheese.
  • Pour cooked strawberry mixture evenly over top of strawberries
  • Place in the fridge for at least 3 -4 hours, but preferably all to stay overnight in the fridge to set.

 

We did cheat a little to make things easier by using a store bought crust but you could certainly use your own pie crust recipe. Either way topping the pie crust with a cool layer of cream cheese lemon curd before adding the sweet fresh strawberries that are thicken with corn starch makes this pie amazing. 

This fresh strawberry pie recipe has a special twist, a lemony cream cheese bottom layer.  The lemon cream cheese layer really enhances the flavor of these fresh strawberries.   And it’s so easy to make this no bake strawberry cream cheese pie.
