Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie Recipe
Ok – let’s talk specifics.
The crust for this no bake strawberry pie is made with Golden Oreos. I love the delicious vanilla cream flavor, and I find that they hold up better than a graham cracker crust. Therefore it’s easier to transport the pie and slice into pieces.
Crush the cookies in a food processor (wafers and filling), or place them in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Then mix with melted butter and press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan.
From there it’s time to make the creamy, dreamy, silky smooth cream cheese filling. (Apparently, I love adjectives). First, beat 1/2 cup of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl beat 12 oz of block of cream cheese (1 and 1/2 packages) until soft. Then mix in 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk. Last but not least, fold in the whipped cream.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust, then pop the whole thing in the fridge to set. It’ll take 4 hours to firm up in the fridge, or you can leave it overnight. If it doesn’t seem to be set, you can also put the pie in the freezer to harden up.
For the strawberries on top, first slice 8 oz of strawberries (about 12 medium-large berries). Then toss the strawberries in 2 tablespoons of strawberry preserves. You can skip this step entirely and simply position the berries on top of the pie if you prefer.
Then it’s time to serve this strawberry cream pie goodness.
And now for a few common questions about making this no bake strawberry pie.
Can I make it with a graham cracker crust instead? Yes. Combine 1 2/3 cups crushed graham crackers, 1/4 cup sugar, and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Then press into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.
Can I make a chocolate Oreo crust instead? Definitely. Just substitute the Golden Oreos with regular Oreos.
Instead of whipped cream can I use whipped topping, such as Cool Whip? Definitely. Measure out 1 cup of whipped topping, then fold it in instead.
My pie didn’t firm up. What went wrong? If your pie didn’t set properly – it might be because the whipped cream deflated, or because too much sweetened condensed milk was added. You can save the day by placing the pie in the freezer for 1-2 hours to firm up.
Can I use strawberry pie filling on top instead? Go for it! Add the pie filling on top right before serving.
