I got this recipe from my aunt years ago, and it has become my favorite strawberry pie recipe. The layer of cream cheese on the bottom of the pie really makes this a special treat. And the glaze is all natural with nothing artificial about it. Always use fully ripe strawberries when making this pie, and if you can get your strawberries from a local farm, then that is even better!

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix cream cheese and milk with small wire whisk until smooth and well blended. Spread on bottom only of ready made pie crust.
