Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie

For this recipe you'll need: pie crust, egg, sugar, cornstarch, jello, strawberries, cream cheese, cool whip.


Place the pie crust into the pie pan so that the edges hang over the pan slightly. Whisk the egg and brush it on the edges of the crust. Sprinkle the edges with Demerara sugar. Bake pie crust according to box directions or homemade recipe and let cool completely

Make the Pie Crust

Bring water, cornstarch, and sugar to a boil, whisking occasionally for 1-2 minutes. Add strawberry Jello and let boil 1 more minute while whisking. Set aside to cool for 10-15 minutes. Blend room temp cream cheese and remaining ½ cup sugar with a hand mixer for 30 seconds until fully mixed and set aside. Hull and slice the strawberries and add to the Jello mixture, stirring until fully coated

Make the Filling

Spread the cream cheese mixture in the bottom of the pie crust and up the sides. Top with strawberry Jello mixture and refrigerate for at least 1 hour

Filling the Pie Crust

Before serving top the whole pie with cool whip or each slice individually. Enjoy!
