Strawberry Cream Pie from Southern Living

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 3 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) sugar divided
  • 3 cup(s) half-and-half
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 oz) package(s) chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1/2 (4 oz) semisweet chocolate baking bar chopped
  • 1/2 cup(s) butter melted
  • 1 quart(s) fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup(s) red currant jelly
  • 1 tablespoon(s) orange liqueur


1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients and 2/3 cup sugar in a medium-size heavy saucepan. Whisk together half-and-half and next 2 ingredients in a small bowl; gradually add to cornstarch mixture, whisking constantly.

2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat, and transfer to a bowl; cover and chill 4 to 24 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pulse wafer cookies and chopped chocolate in a food processor 8 to 10 times or until finely crushed. Stir together cookie crumb mixture, melted butter and remaining 1/3 cup sugar; firmly press mixture on bottom, up sides, and onto lip of a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool completely, about 30 minutes.

5. Spoon chilled half-and-half mixture into prepared crust. Cut 8 to 10 strawberries in half, and arrange around outer edge of pie; hull and slice remaining strawberries, and arrange in center of pie.

6. Cook jelly in a small saucepan over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until melted. Remove from heat, and stir in liqueur. Brush jelly mixture gently over strawberries. Chill, uncovered, 30 minutes.
