A fresh strawberry pie, better than the ones offered by restaurants. I found the recipe in the Betty Crocker collection.


  • 6 cups strawberries, hulled
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 TB cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp lemon peel
  • 1 pie crust


  • Bake pie crust for single pie, cool.
  • Beat lemon peel and cream cheese together.
  • When crust is cool, spread cream cheese mixture over the crust.
  • Mash enough strawberries to measure 1 cup.
  • Mix sugar and cornstarch in saucepan.
  • Gradually stir in water and mashed strawberries. (you may add red food coloring if you want a deeper red)
  • Cook over medium heat until thickened and boils - stirring constantly.
  • Boil and stir for one minute.
  • Pour over remaining strawberries and gentle stir to ensure all strawberries are covered with mixture.
  • Pour strawberry mixture over the cream cheese/pie crust.
  • Refrigerate until set.
