Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie
No-bake strawberry cream cheese pie is a sweet delicacy to romantically spoils your family. It looks elegant, tastes fresh and delicious, and is very colorful — a gorgeous summer treat.
Servings: 8 slices
- 16 oz cream cheese
- 1 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
- juice of 1 lime
- zest of 1 lime
- 1 vanilla bean
For the crust:
- 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
For the Strawberry Topping:
- 3 cups fresh Strawberries halved
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- juice of 1/2 lime
- mint leaves
Crush the cookies in a food processor. The texture of the cookies after crushing should be similar to sand. Transfer them to a mixing bowl and stir with melted butter. Pour about ⅓ of the crumb mixture into the 9-inch pie dish. Press the mixture firmly to the bottom. It should be tight and compact. Use the bottom of a flat glass to press it down and up the sides. Send the crust to chill for a while in the freezer.
Rinse, hull, and halve all the strawberries. Transfer the berries to a mixing bowl. Add two tablespoons of sugar, two tablespoons of lime juice, and some mint leaves. Mix and set aside.
Using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, start at low speed to beat cream cheese. Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature. When you see cream cheese is light and fluffy, add condensed milk. Whisk again to incorporate it all together. Next, add vanilla seeds, lime zest, and squeeze some fresh lime juice. Beat for 3-4 more minutes until you get beautiful smooth cream cheese filling.
Using a silicone spatula, spread cream cheese filling into your chilled crust. Send to the refrigerator for some hours to chill.
Lastly, the final touches. First, pipe the pie alongside with whipping cream. Then pour over the chilled cream cheese pie the strawberry topping.
Serve chilled with a glass of Prosecco!
