STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE

The minute I see strawberries that are finally looking good, I grab a pack and make this strawberry cream pie! This pie gets made several times during the spring and summer. One time is just never enough πŸ™‚Β

MY TIPS FOR THIS RECIPE

  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened before using to avoid lumps. Place unwrapped cream cheese on a plate and microwave for about 30-35 seconds. This will get the cream cheese nice and soft but not burning hot and melted.Β 
  • I have done it both ways with the strawberries. Cutting them in half (the long ways) and placing them flat side down on top of the cream layer OR chop them into small pieces. The smaller chopped pieces are easier for kids to eat but the larger strawberries look really pretty so do either way.Β 
  • I actually love the frozen pre-made pie crusts from the store. I always buy the Marie Callender’s brand and it’s so flaky. If you want, go ahead an make your own 9″ pie crust.Β

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: dessert recipe, strawberry cream pie, strawberry pie
Servings: 10
Author: Jessica - Together as Family
Ingredients
  • 1 (9") frozen store-bought pie crust
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 bar (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 lb strawberries (chopped OR cut in half lengthwise)
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
Instructions
  1. Bake pie crust according to the package instructions. Let cool completely!

  2. In a small bowl beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. This will take about 3-4 minutes. 

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat together with a mixer until combined. 

  4. Add the whipped cream into the cream cheese mix and blend togehter until combined. Evenly spread into the bottom of the pie crust. 

  5. Top with the chopped or halved strawberries and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. 

  6. In a microwave-safe bowl add the chocolate chips and shortening. Microwave for 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries and serve. Chocolate will harden up fairly quickly so you won't have a melted chocolate mess. 

Recipe Notes

I put the melted chocolate into a Ziploc bag and then snip the corner and drizzle it that way. You can also just use a fork, spoon, or a drizzle spoon (Wilton makes this).Β 

Β 

Make sure the cream cheese is softened to avoid lumps. Place unwrapped cream cheese on a plate and microwave for 30-35 seconds.Β 

Β 

Leftovers will keep for about 1-2 days. The strawberries tend to color the cream layer red after awhile in the fridge. This pie is best served the day you make it. After the few hours of refrigeration time of course. If you want to make it the day before, DO NOT top the cream layer with the strawberries. Just do everything up to the cream layer inside the pie crust and refrigerate it overnight. In the morning top with the strawberries and refrigerate for a few hours and then drizzle the chocolate right before serving.Β

      June 5, 2015 at 8:30 am Anne, thank you so much for coming back and letting me know! For sure, if you would like sweeter, add more sugar. I'm sorry, I should have added that in the recipe. I will go change that. I'm so glad it was easy to make and yummy! Thanks again and I hope you have a great weekend :)
