The Best Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie

This pie has a delicious twist. I no longer make regular strawberry pie because this one is so good.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese
  • 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1⁄2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
  • 1⁄3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1⁄3 cup water
  • 1⁄3 cup grenadine syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cup fresh strawberries, hulled


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Stir in vanilla and almond extracts. In a separate bowl, whip heavy cream just until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the cream cheese mixture. Evenly spread filling in the bottom of the baked pie crust. Chill.
  2. In a saucepan, mix together white sugar and corn starch and stir until smooth. Add grenadine and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, or until thickened. Cool slightly, then chill.
  3. Just before serving, stir together strawberries and cooled glaze until the strawberries are evenly coated. Spread strawberries over the cream cheese layer.
