Creamy Strawberry Pie Recipe

Creamy Strawberry Pie made with fresh and aromatic strawberries, baked into a luxurious custard and topped with a buttery streusel topping, makes the perfect summer treat.

I love making easy and delicious strawberry desserts. Among my most popular once are Strawberry Poke Cake, Strawberry Bars, and Strawberry Lava Cakes.

Creamy Strawberry Pie

A Creamy Strawberry Pie is one of my favorite treats to make with fresh strawberries. This is such an easy and luxurious dessert and perfect to put some berries to good use. This pie can be made with other berries as well, like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries. You can also make it with peaches or cherries! The Creamy Strawberry Pie melts in your mouth with each and every bite. I love the buttery crust, the creamy filling with the juicy and sweet strawberries and the crispy streusel topping.

Serve this pie with vanilla ice cream and fresh mint leaves, it makes the perfect dessert on a hot summer evening! While the pie is amazing on its own, when you top it with some vanilla ice cream, it makes it even better!

How do you make streusel topping?

  • For a great streusel topping, you usually combine: cold butter, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch salt.
  • Using a pastry blender or fork, you cut in the butter until fine crumbs form.
  • Use your hands, to mix and form large clumps.
  • The topping can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Can I use frozen strawberries to make this recipe?

No, I do not recommend that, even after thawing them, the strawberries will still have too much liquid and it will curd the custard.

Can I freeze this Creamy Strawberry Pie?

No, I do not recommend freezing this pie, as the strawberries will release extra water when thawed and it will curd the custard.
