Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 2 hours
Ready in: 2 hours 30 min
Yields: serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 1 Nilla Cookie Pie Crust
  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Lemons, squeezed for juice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Strawberries, 1 cup Crushed + 1 Cup sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Steps

  1. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese until it becomes fluffy. Mix in sweetened condensed milk. Next add the lemon juice and vanilla and mix until the mixture becomes uniform.
  2. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and use a spatula to spread it and flatten the top. Next, refrigerate the pie for 2 hours.
  3. While the pie is firming up in the fridge, add the crushed strawberries to a sauce pan with the water. Cook for a few minutes. Mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Add the sugar mix into the strawberry mix slowly. Stir frequently and bring to a boil. When the sauce looks clear, pour glaze in a container and let it cool off in the refrigerator.
  4. When the pie has been in 2 hours and the glaze is at least room temperature (not warm or it will melt your pie filling:), add the rest of the strawberries on the now firm pie and pour glaze over them. Slice and Serve. Enjoy!

      As soon as the fresh strawberries hit the farmers market, I am making this recipe! My nieces will enjoy making this with me. Easy for them to do & they will enjoy testing the results.

      Oooooh! That looks just de-licious. You make it all seem so easy to make, too.

      You know I hardly make sweet stuff because I usually think I don't have time and so I always skip it - except on Sundays which are more relaxed. I can't wait for strawberries to come into season again here so I can try this one out!

      Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Bless you :)

      I use to make a strawberry cream pie and it looked a lot like yours. I haven't made it in years. Voted up and pinned.
