This is a really easy, yet very delicious pie. It's sure to impress your family and your guests. It has a sweet and tart strawberry layer on top of a smooth, lightly sweetened cream cheese layer, with a hint of lemon, in a crunchy graham cracker crust. So pretty and so yummy! (NOTE: Use only frozen berries for best results.)

How to Make EASY STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove cover from graham cracker crust; wash cover in warm soap water; dry cover and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat together 4 ounces softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth and creamy (about 2 minutes.)
  3. Add 1 cup thawed whipped topping (such as Cool Whip) and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice; beat until thoroughly combined.
  4. Scrape cream cheese mixture into graham pie crust; evenly smooth. Set aside.
  5. Pour red strawberry gelatin powder into a mixing bowl
  6. Add 1 cup boiling water to gelatin; stir constantly until completely dissolved.
  7. Add frozen strawberries, stirring constantly until liquid begins to thicken.
  8. Immediately pour strawberry mixture, evenly, over the cream cheese mixture in pie crust. (Work quickly to distribute the berries evenly because it sets up quickly.)
  9. Place the clean plastic cover over pie; refrigerate for at least 1 1/2 hours before serving.
  10. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
