So did you guys know that today is Pi Day?! You know, as in March 14th —> 3.14 – like the math number? All the math geeks come out in droves, fill the streets and eat pie until they explode!

Ok, so not really. But it is a great day to celebrate the number pi with some actual pie. So a bunch of us bloggers have come together to bring you all kinds of amazing pie! Best. day. EVER! 🙂

My contribution is this beautiful and delicious Strawberry Cream Pie. I’ve actually been wanting to make this pie for quite some time. Since last summer, as a matter of fact.

I have always loved strawberries, especially when covered in sugar which is basically what this pie is. So let’s talk about what’s in it.

I went easy this time and used a Pillsbury crust. You don’t have to worry about making the dough and letting it refrigerate, which is quite nice. Follow the instructions on the box and you will have one great crust. It compliments the pie perfectly!

Next is the cream filling. I actually went a bit light on the cream. Some versions of this pie have twice the amount of cream, but I opted for less. I really love the flavor of the strawberries and didn’t want it to be overpowered by too much cream.

I totally think it was the right call. Just the right amount. It’s made from a simple combination of cream cheese, whipped cream, sugar and vanilla. Make that and spread it in the slightly cooled crust.

Next is the strawberries. You’re going to want to cut the stems off of the ones that will go on top of the filling. Those stems wouldn’t be very tasty. Making the glaze takes a little longer – 15-20 minutes – because you slowly bring the strawberry mixture to a boil, but it’s by no means hard. Just a little patience required.

Once the glaze is made and slightly cooled, you pour it over your strawberries on the pie and refrigerate for about 4 hours or more before serving.

You’ll notice that I added some blueberries to mine. That’s totally not necessary. With all the strawberry flavor going on, you barely notice them. But I like the touch of color they bring. And the extra antioxidants. Why not add a little health punch to the sugar. 🙂

This will seriously be one of the best things you’ve ever tasted if you dig strawberries.

And the hubs was completely in love with it to. I hate that I can’t better describe to you in words how good it is. I wish I could hand out samples through the screen.

The day after we finished the pie, I got a text message from him at work telling me how sad he was that the pie was gone. That’s a first!

So join us in celebrating pi with pie! Strawberries are on sale like crazy right now, so this pie is perfect!

    Delicious! I doubled the filling as i thought it may not be enough and so happy I did! A glass of proseco complimented perfectly.

  2. Amanda Randel

    I’ve made this pie twice now, and my husband and I love it! So delicious! I’ve also tried it with a graham cracker pie crust, and it’s also amazing that way! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Rachael

    I’m so glad that I subscribed to your website. Everything here look’s so delicious and you definitely have a lot of talent. I will be making the pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cake since I have all the ingredients to make this. I look forward to making some of the ice cream cakes for the Summer ; so much better than buying them plus I can say that I made it! Great job with the recipes! God bless you.

    How do you make strawberry puree?? Just toss some in a processor? I’m new at baking hoping to make this tomorrow for easter

    I made this Strawberry Cream Pie for Pi Day 2015 — it was DELICIOUS! (I did double the filling because we like the cream part.) However, I did feel that using the standard pie crust did nothing for the pie, flavor or texture-wise. My husband suggested a graham cracker crust, my MIL suggested a Nilla Wafer crust, both of which would be tasty options. I think a baked shortbread crust is probably the flavor and texture I would like most with this fabulous pie. We enjoyed eating this pie so much that I made it again a week later using blueberries and Ritz cracker crust — and that was fabulous too!

      Thank you for leaving a revue after actually making the pie. So many ‘reviewers’ say this look good or I can’t wait to make it, but to get someone who *actually* made the pie and commented on the recipe is a struggle. Yes, it looks delicious, but please, like this reviewer, make it before commenting. I mean we, (well *I*) want to know how the recipe actually worked.

    Happy Belated PiDay.
