Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie is one of my Aunt Frieda’s recipes! Aunt Frieda is one of the six sisters, my grandmother’s sisters. This pie is really delicious with the great flavor of whole strawberries and a fluffy no bake cream cheese base! So so Yummy!

This is my Aunt Frieda! She was the perfect Aunt! When she babysat we had Spaghetti and Mashed Potatoes for dinner, with a quick walk to Dairy Queen for dipped cones! My sister and I loved spending the night with her, we would play cards and board games and before bed sometimes we would get a piece of her Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie! I miss her a lot!

As you know I hate making pie crust, so I buy the rolls in the refrigerator section. Sometimes I get a ready made graham cracker crust, depending on my mood. If you want to make scratch crusts, there are tons of recipes on the Internet! Good luck! I hope they work out better for you than they do for me!

Here is her recipe, I hope that you love it as much as we do!

This pie is so delicious with a fluffy rich cream cheese base and topped with Strawberries!  

The secret to the topping is Strawberry Jello!



For the Cream Cheese Base:

8 ounces (1 box) Cream Cheese – softened

1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1 Cup Heavy Cream

For the Strawberry Topping:

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

1/4 Cup Sugar

2 Tablespoons Strawberry Jello – This is most of a box

1/2 Cup Water

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

3 Cups of Strawberries – stemmed and hulled


For the Cream Cheese Base:

Make crust of choice, if traditional pie crust or homemade graham cracker crust let cool completely.

Beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth and almost fluffy.

In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks.

Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into your cooled crust.

Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

For the Strawberry Topping:

In a saucepan, stir together cornstarch, sugar, strawberry jello, lemon juice and water.  

Whisk or stir constantly over low heat until it thickens.

Remove from Heat and let cool 20  –  30 minutes.

Mix in whole or sliced strawberries until they are all coated and shiny.

Arrange strawberries as desired or just pile them on top of the cream cheese layer.

Refrigerate until ready to serve and refrigerate any left overs.
