fresh strawberries and cream pie with a slice out of it with berries in the background

I often post pie recipes because pie is generally pretty easy to make and something my family really enjoys!  I like pie but now that I’ve met this pie, I LOVE pie!

This amazing pie has a crust filled with a homemade cream filling that has been kissed with fresh lemon and then is topped with luscious fresh strawberries.  Not only is it gorgeous, but it is seriously delicious!  My family completely devoured this!

Keep in mind the recipe below makes 2 pies, which is perfect because these will not last long!

  1. I absolutely love this recipe. It is so easy. The pies came out perfect. I made them for Easter dessert and it was a hit. This is most definitely a keeper..!! Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe.5 stars

  2. We just made this and are very excited to try it. However, 5-6 cups of strawberries was only enough for one pie so we doubled that and the glaze for two pies.

  3. You have got the easiest web page of anyone. Including the big-named magazines and channels. I’ve used many of the ideas and recipies and I’m new to “Pinning” items, but your site makes it easy-peasy! Thank you for bring your brilliance and hard work to the world. I very much appreciate it.
