Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie is made completely from scratch with an almost creamy strawberry sauce smothering fresh strawberries. Top it all off with a cream cheese whipped topping for the perfect strawberry pie!
Slice strawberries. Mash some of the strawberries until you have 1 cup mashed. Place the remaining strawberries into the baked pie shell. Place into the refrigerator for later use.
Place 1 cup mashed strawberries into a large saucepan. Stir in sugar, water, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted.
Allow mixture to cool, 1 hour. Pour cooled mixture over the strawberries. Return pie to the fridge until set, about 4 hours.
In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat heavy cream with cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping bag to pipe designs onto finished pie, or serve each slice with a dollop of whipped cream.
