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.
