Strawberry White Chocolate Pie, a Rich taste from a No-bake

While cleaning out my pantry this past weekend I discovered I had a 24 oz bag of white chocolate chips. I had bought these to makes some cookies that I never got around to. 

Anyways, I started thinking and as you know I love pie. So, I thought why not make some sort of white chocolate chip pie and ended up with my Strawberry White Chocolate Pie. 

Strawberry White Chocolate Pie

After doing a lot of searching on Pinterest I found several white chocolate no-bake cheesecake type dishes. This sounded good and all but I wanted a little something different. 

Having made my Lemon Berry Pie recently, I really wanted something with berries, primarily Strawberries, which are my fave. 

Fresh Strawberries
I love adding strawberries to recipes

Needless to say by combining a few different recipes I came up with my own Strawberry White Chocolate Pie.

Oreo Pie Crust

While the filling is basically a no-bake white chocolate cheesecake, I decided to go with an Oreo pie crust. I thought this would give a great black and white look to the pie and break up the white chocolate flavor a little.

This pie is so good and easy to make

To tell the truth I think this is the first time I’ve ever used an Oreo pie crust, crazy I know. 

I really like the classic look the pie gives with the dark crust, white pie and the pop of color from the strawberries. 

Adding Strawberries

The strawberries I think really break up the richness of this pie and give it a bit of a refreshing taste. I also really love how the Strawberry White Chocolate Pie looks when sliced into and seeing all those delicious strawberries at the bottom of the pie.

I love the hidden strawberries

I added a few strawberries on top just to break up the white color of the pie, and give a little hint to what to expect. I suppose I could have just left it a surprise when you cut into the pie, but oh well. 

Rich Taste

The Strawberry White Chocolate Pie has such a rich taste. The decadent white chocolate and Neufchâtel cheese flavor are paired exquisitely with the fresh taste of the strawberries.

I love the layered look of this cake

What I probably like most about this Strawberry White Chocolate Pie, is that while it looks like something from a fancy restaurant, it really is a quickie bake. 

As always, I’d love to hear if you make this pie and what your thoughts are.
