This strawberry cream cheese pie from scratch is a slice of heaven.
Sweet berries (any berry will work) mounded over a creamy decadent cream
cheese filling. Yum.
This old fashioned pie recipe goes back decades and still decadent
and delicious. Get out strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or
cherries and make this today. A graham cracker crust is also delicious.
two (8oz) blocks cream cheese, softened
3 cups strawberries
1 TBS white sugar
6 TBS white sugar
3 TBS corn starch
3 TBS homemade powdered sugar
1/2 cup homemade whipped cream
9 inch pie crust, baked for 8 minutes and cooled
Place the sliced strawberries in a dish and sprinkle with sugar. Let sit for 30 to 60 minutes to make juice. Reserve 1/2 cup strawberries and juice for later.
Add the remaining berries and juice in a saucepan and add the sugar and cornstarch. Simmer until berries break down and the mixture thickens. Cool.
Meanwhile, beat together the cream cheese, reserved juice, powdered sugar, and whipped cream until fluffy.
Scatter the reserved berries in the bottom of the cooled pie crust. Spoon the cream cheese mixture on top of them, using a spatula to smooth it out.
Pour the cooled strawberry sauce in the center of the pie and
smooth out toward the edges. You may top with more strawberries on top.
Chill for two hours and serve with whipped cream.
