Strawberries And Cream Pie

This Strawberries and Cream Pie is filled with freshly glazed strawberries sitting on top of a whipped cream cheese filling. Garnished with more whipped cream, it transforms into a summertime dessert that’s company worthy.

Strawberries and Cream a Heavenly Match-Up

Strawberries and whipped cream are one of those flavor combinations that thrill me to the core as surely, it’s a match so glorious it had to have been made in heaven. Sweet, luscious, red strawberries and fluffy clouds of fresh whipped cream can only be described in heavenly terms. When fresh strawberries begin to show-up in our market it’s sheer joy figuring out more ways to use them and strawberry pie is a given. I also frequently get requests for my strawberry cheesecake trifle and strawberries and cream poke cake. Along with those goodies, there must be pie.

Make Your Own Strawberry Glaze for Pie

I really can’t bring myself to make fresh strawberry pie with that thick store bought glaze. I’m certain you know the glaze I’m talking about. It’s typically stocked along with those tiny round angel food cakes in the Produce department of the grocery store. It’s such a simple thing to make yourself with ingredients you likely already have in your pantry. The whipped cream cheese layer transforms it into angels food. If you’re looking for more ways to enjoy strawberries, take a peak at my super simple Strawberry Shortcake Brownie Cupcakes and for the rhubarb fans,  Strawberry Rhubarb Pie from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

  • 1 9 inch deep dish pie crust baked and cooled
  • 2 quart fresh strawberries divided
  • 2/3-3/4 cup granulated sugar See Cook’s note
  • 1/2 cup water plus 2 Tbsp
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp pure almond extract
  • Few drops red food coloring
  • 1 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Sweetened fresh whipped cream for serving


  • Rinse and hull the strawberries. In a food processor, puree enough strawberries to equal 1 cup and halve the rest. Set aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed saucepan, cook together the granulated sugar, water and pureed strawberries. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved. Lower the temperature to medium-high.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 Tbsp cold water, a little more if needed, and whisk into the strawberry sauce. Continue to cook for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 tsp almond extract then set aside to cool.
  • Adjust the color by adding a few drops of red food coloring, if desired.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, heavy cream, lemon juice and vanilla until fully combined. Spread onto the bottom of the cooled pie shell.
  • Arrange the halved berries in rows starting at the center of the pie. Pour the glaze on top. Chill for at least 2-3 hours or until set.
  • Serve with whipped cream.


The amount of sugar in the glaze can be adjusted according to the sweetness of the strawberries.

  1. This is so pretty! My grandmother always made the best strawberry pies. I never thought of adding a cream cheese layer, but now I’m definitely going to have to do it! Thanks for the idea!

  2. I can’t wait to try this! I’ll probably replace most of the sugar with Splenda (the hubs and I are diabetic)and just use the confectioner’s sugar with the cream cheese mixture. This looks and sounds so good!
