How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Pie

This easy strawberry shortcake recipe is so delicious, and so fun to make too! It’s absolutely filled to the brim with amazing ingredients, and I love assembling the layers to create the perfect pie. You will make the cream cheese filling to layer into the pie, but there’s no baking involved. It’s mostly just a matter of layering up all of the ingredients!

Let’s talk about those layers and how to make this pie (starting from the bottom layer):

  1. Pie Crust – you can make your own if you prefer, but a store-bought pie crust works just fine (and makes this recipe much easier).
  2. Cream Cheese Mixture – Beat cream cheese until light & smooth, and mix with powdered sugar, white chocolate, and almond & vanilla extract.
  3. Pound Cake – Again, you can make your own, but I like Sara Lee’s pound cake, and store-bought makes this recipe quick and easy. Cut the cake into 1/4 in slices and place in a single layer on top of the cream cheese. Cut smaller pieces of cake to fill in gaps and make an even layer.
  4. Strawberry Mixture – Mix fresh sliced strawberries with the strawberry glaze to get that fresh made texture. Apply a layer of this on top of the cake layer.
  5. Another layer of the pound cake.
  6. Another layer of the cream cheese filling.
  7. Another layer of the strawberry glaze on top.
  8. Add some cool whip, drizzled white chocolate, and sliced strawberries on top for decoration (optional).

This creates the most beautiful strawberry shortcake pie! I love how easy it is to just buy the ingredients and make the pie, layer by layer, without any extra hassle. Like I said, you can always make some of these ingredients homemade (pound cake, strawberry glaze, pie crust), but that wouldn’t be quite as easy!
