Who doesn’t love fresh berries from the strawberry patch, especially when you have the satisfaction of picking them yourself? It seemed like berries were early this year, so we went and picked a few for jam, for eating, for Strawberry Shortcake, and all the strawberry things. This Strawberry Cream Pie is one of the first things we make every single year with our berry haul. It really doesn’t take a lot of berries, though I’ll admit, I do like to pile them on.
Elements of a Strawberry Cream Pie
For the crust, I used a simple, delicious recipe from Better Homes and Gardens for a change; we were thrilled with the taste and texture of the crust. It was so good. If you have the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, it’s called Rich Tart Pastry.
The cream filling is just a simple cream cheese filling that involves only 3 ingredients; but it’s oh so good, especially when you pair the cream filling with the berries and the pastry crust.

Print the Recipe for Strawberry Cream Pie
Strawberry Cream Pie
- 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese
- 1½ cups powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 3-4 cups sliced berries
- 1 pie crust We used the Rich Tart Pastry recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.
- Mix crust and bake according to the instructions for your preferred recipe. Allow the crust to cool in the pan.
- Wash and slice berries, and set aside.
- Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk.
- When pie crust has cooled, spread the creamy filling in the crust.
- Top with berries; you can put as few or as many as you like. We prefer to pile the pie high with berries. (Also, a tip to get more juice... Mix the berries with a small amount of sugar, and mix well. Juice will form as you mix in the sugar.)
- Chill the pie in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours. (We think the pie tastes even better the next day.)
- Serve and enjoy!
