Two Tier Strawberry Pie

I'm not usually a fan of strawberry pie, but this one is delicious! Our pastor's wife made this for us, and I requested the recipe. Originally from, she adapted it slightly. Her version is below.

~from originally

  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 t. lemon zest
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 1 (9-inch) baked pie shell
  • 1/3 c. white sugar
  • 2 T. cornstarch
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/3 c. grenadine syrup (or 1/3 c. orange marmalade with 1 t. strawberry jello mix)
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • 2 c. fresh strawberries
  1. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and confectioner's sugar until creamy. Stir in vanilla and lemon zest. 
  2. In separate bowl, whip cream. Fold into cream cheese mixture. Spread over bottom of pie crust. Chill.
  3. In a saucepan, mix together white sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water until smooth. Add grenadine and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Allow to cool, then chill.
  4. Just before serving, stir together berries and cooled mixture until coated. Spread over cream cheese layer.
