Fresh Strawberry Pie

My sister , Edith, has made this fresh strawberry pie for years. I have always thought it sounded delicious & I wasn’t wrong!! I do love the strawberry pies that have the custard on the bottom, strawberries & then that beautiful red glaze from the package you can get at the grocery store! Nothing wrong with that pie either. But….

The glaze in this recipe is made from fresh strawberries…so… is really good! Fresh strawberries are put on top of plain cream cheese that has been softened & spread in a baked pie shell.  Then the glaze goes on top… my glaze was thick & the strawberries did not show through the glaze so it wasn’t the prettiest pie, but it was delicious.

The recipe is from & is called Gold Medal Fresh Strawberry Pie.

Here is the recipe



1  baked & cooled pie shell *** I made my pie shell using the recipe on a package of Crisco but you can use a frozen pie shell if you want.

For the Glaze

1 cup sugar

2 tbsp cornstarch

1/2 cup water

1 cup mashed strawberries

 For the pie
1 3 ox package of cream cheese, softened
1 tsp grated lemon peel
5 cups washed & hulled strawberries, I cut them in half
  1. Have your pie shell cooled & ready to fill
  2. In a saucepan…mix together the sugar & cornstarch together
  3. Add the 1/2 cup of water & the mashed strawberries
  4. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the mixture gets thick & boils
  5. Boil & stir for 1 minute. Let this mixture cool completely *** you can put this in the fridge to cool quicker if you want
  6. Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese & lemon peel together until the cream cheese is smooth
  7. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly in the pie crust. I used a small off-set spatula
  8. Put the strawberries into the pie shell over top of the cream cheese mixture
    Pour the cooled strawberry glaze mixture over top of the strawberries
    Cool the pie the  refrigerator for about 3 hours.
    ***Keep the pie in the refrigerator to store

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
