Strawberries and Cream Pie

Strawberries and Cream Pie

While summer technically doesn’t end for a while longer, I think a lot of people consider August the last month of summer and so it’s time to squeeze in as many last summery recipes as possible! I’ve been making this Strawberries and Cream Pie for many years now. It’s really simple to make and is a great way to use up any left over strawberries you may have in your fridge!

Strawberries and Cream Pie

You can use store-bought or homemade pie crust, whatever you prefer! Then add a big old pile of freshly sliced strawberries and a creamy custard-filling. My favorite part? The crumb topping! This strawberry pie is a great alternative to more traditional fruit pies like apple, cherry, or blueberry that you may typically see at parties. That makes this is my go-to pie recipe for spring and summer parties or holidays! And I loveeeeee the creamy and custardy filling that surrounds all the strawberries. I like this pie slightly warmed with a big dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top. Long live summer!

  1. Your post cracked me up lol!!! Love the photos! The pie looks amazing and I am totally with you seriously everything Linsey makes looks amazing. No one can put a cookie into a recipe better than her. :) I am sure that pie tasted as amazing as it looks!

  2. LOL, not gonna lie, I love the genie lamp photo! But those baby shoes? Hmmm. The pie totally makes up for it though!

  3. Wow if I had a genie bottle, I know what I wished for ;)
    This pie is stunning!

    Cheers

  4. I LOVE this pie. I think I’m in love with the genie lamp too. Maybe I shouldn’t style photos. :)

  5. What a brilliant idea! :-)

  6. If I knew I would be served that pie, I would rush you to take pictures as well. Heh. This is a fantastic recipe. One that I’d love to try.

  7. On behalf of the family; we knew exactly what we were doing, and it was hilarious.

  8. Too funny! Did you submit any of those to Foodgawker et al???? Oh, this pie looks AMAZING!!! How did I miss this beauty???? I need to make it, too :)

  9. Love the recipe, Stephanie. I also love the comical props you’ve incorporated. Funny how that genie lamp does seem to amplify the delicious character of the pie..!

  10. Keep the strawberry recipes coming. This pie looks delicious. I would almost hate cutting into it, but I think I would get over it. You are right about them just wanting to eat faster but with this pie in front of them can you really blame them?

  11. What a lovely pie!! I am such a strawberry freak! I would so love this!!! Yum, yum!!

  12. Holy yummy pie! And I actually like the genie bottle, I think it’s fun. But the baby shoes are a bit weird haha. I do have the problem of others staring over my shoulder as I take photos waiting to eat what it is I’m photographing which definitely results in me taking less time and not getting as good of pictures.

  13. I love the name of your blog!!! So happy I stopped by because I love strawberry cream pie!

  14. Baby chinese shoes addiing color on this picture Lol,,,,yes I’m sure no body can’t wait for a sliice or more of this Yummy strawberry cream pie :)

  15. The genie bottle is awesome!!! The baby shoes are cool too, but prolly cuter on an actual baby :) The pie looks fab!!

  16. This looks incredible, Stephanie. I would have no self-control over it!

  17. This pie looks incredible, and I think the genie bottle totally works! Bookmarking the pie! Maybe I can find a genie bottle to put in the background for my photos. hahaha.

  18. Ha! I totally agree with my family being like “hurry up and take a picture so we can eat!” In fact, I think my husband said that to me this morning after I made breakfast :) That pie looks really good. I can see why your family had a slice of both pies. They both look fantastic. Hope you had a nice holiday with your family!

  19. I know what you are talking about…
    I try to make my recipes after giving some snacks to the kids or else I just cross my fingers that at least I get 1 decent picture ….
    B/W this pie looks delicious!!!!

  20. I love that you let your family try to style your photos. The pie looks delicious–perfect for spring!

  21. Hahaha! Love your family’s eye for food styling! Hilarious post and a totally mouthwatering pie. This looks like heaven on a plate!

  22. LOL!!!!!! Thank you for giving a good laugh today!! Those “family food-styling pictures” are hilarious. My mother is guilty of the ideology “more” is more too. :) Okay… let me stopf giggling long enough to drool a little about that strawberry pie. The pie looks wonderful and I love crumb topping!! YUM!

  23. Wow, that is one pretty pie! It looks so incredible. And that crumble topping? Yum!

  24. This post cracked me up! I love the addition of chinese baby shoes and the genie bottle. Maybe they were trying to be ethnic. Btw, I love the word “amaze-balls.” -hilarious. This pie has some serious “amaze-ball” qualities. Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the next photo shoot.

  25. Too funny!!! Chinese doll shoes! Priceless :) When I have my Little One around, he just grabs at everything – I’m used to it now, and he even gets his little hands in my pictures…lol.. I don’t think I could have my hubby style a photo though!! Have a great weekend!

  26. This is one gorgeous pie, I’d eat a slice or three. I am loving your family styling for you. It’s totally adorable.

  27. Oh Stephanie…..this pie looks so good! Really….it’s just beautiful. And I bet it tastes even better than it looks. And I love this post. Honestly…..how great that your family got into this with you….( no matter what their motives). And look….at least they did a good job with the color scheme! Too cute! : )

  28. Strawberries and cream = always a perfect match! I love the crumby look of this pie…
    I will make sure I’ll keep your tips in mind about photo styling ;)

  29. This is a tasty looking pie-I have never seen anything like this with the strawberry cream and crumble topping. I really like the different textures as well as the flavors-yum!.
    Funny food styling from the kids, especially the shoes! Yes, they just want to eat and I am sure it is not easy with them all standing around wanting to sink their teeth into your creations immediately. Enjoy the weekend Steph!

  30. I know exactly what you mean and I love your pictures. My hubby is always glaring at me when I’m taking the food shots and wants to know why it’s taking so long. Love the Chinese doll shoes as they are the perfect complement to the pie.

  31. Ha! That’s too funny. I know what you mean though. My husband can be starving after work, but doesn’t get a bite until I’ve taken my photos. Love the pie!

  32. Whenever my friends come over they’re confused why I take more than one photo.
    I feel your pain.

    The pie looks delicious :)

  33. Chinese shoes lol…your family may not be good at food styling but lucky them being able to eat this glorious pie! Seriously it looks and sounds amazing and I would love a large piece!

  34. A genie bottle and chinese shoes? I love it! Your family is just too cute.

    Btw, this pie is freaking amazing. What I would do right now to grab a slice of that. I’d sell an arm. And a leg.

  35. Too funny!!!

    But the best thing is that I see that, in my case, is the contrary!!
    My boyf takes the photos, and even if I ask him for it, I want the photos fast, to eat warm!!
    And I am alway saying: “We can put this here, or there”, and is he who says it’s too much.
    So you can imagine how much can I laught with your experience, I think my boyf can understand you!!!

    Sorry for my english, I never comment cos I speak sooo clumsy, but today, I can’t avoid it!!

    PD: One point to your family for the chinese shoes!! They’re genious, bun anyone understand genious!

  36. I never do such a mistake! I know that if I let my son or husband mess with my photos I am going to regret every second of it! The tart looks delicious and the photos are very innovative!

  37. I don’t know about the photo-styling, but the pie itself looks phenomenal!

  38. Ok, I have to admit, the Chinese baby shoes did seem like a bit of tenuous thread ;-) *too* funny! Hey, you still managed to get a shot on Gawker out of it all – good for you! I’m the same way, I can’t stand being rushed (or even watched :)) when I’m taking photos… your pie looks spine tingling delicious!

  39. I was waiting for this pie recipe! It looks amazing…even with the crazy styling :) It’s totally something my family would do too!

  40. My kids do the same exact thing! I’ve learned to photograph all dessert shots while they’re at school so they don’t hover. My 7 year old especially – she thinks adding a Littlest Pet Shop toy to any photo is just what it needs! God bless her for trying…

  41. LOL!!! I love the booties, that is hysterical:-) Your crumble on top looks amazing….AND that pie sounds delicious:-) Hugs, Terra

  42. hahaha. This post had me LMAO

  43. How did your rim crust turn out golden when you baked the pie for over an hour. I thought the edges would blacken? Please help.

    • Hey Michael, I have made this pie in my mom’s oven and in my own and have not had any issues with the crust burning. If your crust burned, then you might want to get an oven thermometer and double check that your oven temperature is correct. It’s possible that your oven may be getting hotter than what you are setting it at. Hope that helps!
