Ingredients

Strawberry Topping:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 cup strawberry purée
  • 6 cups sliced strawberries

Dream Whip Filling:

Pie Crust:

Instructions

  • Have the pecan crust baked, cooled, and ready to go.
  • Whisk the corn starch and water together in a small glass measuring cup.
  • Add the corn starch mixture together with the sugar in a medium to large saucepan.
  • Mix in the strawberry purée.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil on low to medium heat, constantly stirring with a spatula to avoid scorching.
  • Once the mixture boils, cook it for 3 to 5 more minutes, or until it thickens and turns a deep red.
  • Remove the strawberry sauce from the heat, and allow it to cool.*
  • Meanwhile, using a mixer, beat the cream cheese well.
  • In a separate mixer bowl, whisk together the Dream Whip with the milk and vanilla, according to package directions. Whisk it until it begins to form soft peaks, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the cream cheese and powdered sugar to the Dream Whip mixture, and whisk for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it’s smooth and creamy.
  • Spread the Dream Whip cream cheese filling onto the prepared pie crust.**
  • Once the strawberry sauce has cooled enough, mix the sliced strawberries into the sauce.
  • Spread the strawberries and sauce mixture over the Dream Whip filling.
  • Cover your no bake strawberry dessert and allow it to chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible.
  • When it’s ready to serve, you can top it off with a dollop of whipped cream or serve it as is. It’s so delicious!

Notes

*I like to put my strawberry sauce in the freezer while I go about mixing up the rest of the pie. About 30 minutes in the freezer (with occasional stirring) will cool it enough that you can finish making the dessert.
**You can also use a regular pie crust or a graham cracker crust. Or get creative with the other options I included in the post above.
