Strawberry Cheesecake Pie is a cinch to make. Are you super pinched for time? You can make the crust ahead of time and freeze the prepared baked crust in the pan wrapped for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature unwrapped before using in this recipe. You can also bake the crust and prepare the cream cheese filling several days in advance and store wrapped in the refrigerator. However hold off on the glazed strawberry topping until at the most 12 hours before serving.
