“My mom used to make this for our family back in '72. I totally loved it then as I do now! Very quick and easy to make. My mom used to make homemade crust but I always have trouble with mine and I recently found Keebler® ready made shortbread pie crusts!”

I made this for Faceless Frenzy July 2012. For the shortbread crust I mixed 1/2 cup of softened butter with 1 Cup flour and 1/4 powdered sugar until it was crumbly then patted it into a tart pan. Bake for about 25 minutes at 350. The cream cheese layer needed a little sweetening - I would add a couple of tablespoons of powdered sugar to it. As for the glaze, I didn't want it chunky so a used a hand held blender to puree the strawberries in the pan - it was still to chunky so I ran the sauce through a fine mesh sieve and the glaze was perfect and glossy. I will make this again - it is beautiful.

Hi! This is like my mom's recipe from '70s. The mashed mixture of cooked strawberries isn't suppose to be smooth. This is different from the packaged strawberry glazes that you can buy. A little more rustic I guess. After the glaze is cooked, it will look like strawberry jam. Hope everyone enjoys this pie because I sure do!

I loved this and it was a big hit after a summer bbq! I followed the review that suggested adding icing sugar to the cream cheese - added about 1/3 of a cup. Also used sugar cookie dough to create the crust.
