Looking at it, you can see why this is my wonderful husbands favorite birthday treat!! It’s packed to the brim with fresh sweet strawberries and a thick, gooey glaze. But what really makes the pie is the crust. I have to say it because he’s not a crust person…..but there’s something about the crust on this pie that’s to die for! It’s so rich and buttery….almost like shortbread….and without it, the pie just wouldn’t be the same!  So here’s to my sweetie HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Strawberry Pie:


Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar

With a mixer in a medium bowl whip cheese, powdered sugar and cream until light and fluffy.  Spread into the bottom and sides of your cooled tart or pie shell.
