What is a Strawberry Cream Pie?
To answer simply, strawberry cream pie has a crust (either traditional pie crust or graham cracker), some sort of cream cheese or cream layer, and is topped with strawberries.
Is a Strawberry Cream Pie Easy to Make?
Don’t tell my secrets … but YES! It TOTALLY IS one of the easiest pies in my pie arsenal! It looks impressive and the colors are gorgeous, so no one even thinks that it might be the easiest pie on the face of the earth. The trickiest part is getting beautiful, fresh berries. So if the berries are in stock you’re in luck! Easy peasy!
The other thing that makes this strawberry pie such a cinch is the crust. No rolling out pie dough … I’m a sucker for graham cracker crust! (Although, you could easily substitute the graham cracker crust for a more traditional crust. Totally up to you!)
