Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie

The weather is finally starting to feel like summer, and what a better way to celebrate it than a fresh strawberry pie- or better yet- a fresh strawberry pie with a cream cheese layer!

I found this next recipe on allrecipes, but adjusted it to my liking. This is my adjusted recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 (9 inch) baked pie shell
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup grenadine syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until smooth and creamy. Stir in vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whip cream until peaks form. Fold into cream cheese mixture. Spread over bottom of baked pie shell. Chill.
  2. In a saucepan, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water until smooth. Add grenadine and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly, or until thickened. Allow to cool, then chill.
  3. Just before serving, stir together strawberries and cooled cornstarch mixture until evenly coated. Spread over cream cheese layer.
This is definitely worth a try!
This pie isn’t going to last long in my house!
