"I have been baking this pie since my daughters were very small. They are now 40 and 42. So as you can see, I have been making this pie for a long time. It is always the one they request when we have BBQs in the summertime. I even make it for them in the winter when and if I can find fresh strawberries. I think you will like it also. My grand-daughter said I should name it 'To Die For Strawberry Cream Pie.'" — paniece

I made this delicious pie for my dad’s birthday. I made this as written using a Pillsbury® Pie Crust. It does need to be made AT LEAST an hour before serving so that the cream layer can set up. Otherwise, your pieces will not cut nicely. My pie set for an hour and a half and I could not get a pretty piece of pie. After the pie was in the refrigerator all night, the cream cheese layer had time to set properly and the pieces cut and served very nicely. With strawberries just starting to appear in our groceries, I know I will be making this one again. I will plan on making early in the morning, or refrigerate overnight before serving.
I really wanted to like this pie but the cinnamon completely overwhelmed the flavor. My husband agreed with me. I don't think this pie even needs cinnamon in it. Next time I will omit it all together and try it again.
Excellent! Of course, I'm always a sucker for fresh strawberry pie. I made my own crust b/c the store bought ones taste just like grocery store pie. Hmmm... imagine that! I also made my own glaze and let it be a bit chunky. As a result, the strawberry topping turned out not quite as firm as I'd hoped, but that was no fault of this recipe. I'll just add a bit more cornstarch next time. The cream filling was divine, and as the name of the recipe indicates, this pie truly is "to die for". I'm making another tomorrow to take to a benefit dinner!
I selected this recipe because I sent someone to the store and instead of getting brick cream cheese, they got strawberry cream cheese spread, in a tub. I needed to regroup and could not make the cheesecake I had planned to make. So, this recipe looked like something that I could adapt using the spread. It worked. I used 2 tubs (8 oz) of the strawberry cream cheese spread, added all the other ingredients, except the vanilla and the cinnamon (I added a TBSP of Chambord) and made my own crust and glaze. All I can say is this recipe is a keeper. Even though I changed this recipe out of necessity, I bet the original is delicious too. Thanks for the recipe Paniece.
Very, very good! Made my own crust and strawberry glaze so it took a while but well worth it. Will make it again.
This pie was delicious! Everyone in my family loved it and was upset that I had only made one. The filling is what made this a special treat. I agree with another review, you need to let this pie sit in the refrigerator for longer than an hour. Will defintely make again and again.
