Strawberry Pie Bars: no crust to roll out, easy, delicious pie in a bar form! With a cream cheese glaze too

I may have mentioned it once or twice, but I am NOT good at making pie crust. For whatever reason, I think I just don’t have the patience.

Which is odd really. I can roll dough. I make sugar cookies. And cinnamon rolls. And bread. But when it comes to making a pie crust, I usually opt for Pillsbury!

Today’s recipe is for pie bars. You may remember these Peach Pie Bars I made last fall. They were delicious! The cinnamon glaze on top was perfect.

The only problem with that recipe, is unless you are serving a large crowd, it makes a LOT of pie bars! Perfect for a potluck. Yes! For someone who is trying to watch what she eats? Nope. Not so much. It’s so good I can’t keep my fork off of it!

These Strawberry Pie bars though are another story. I made them in a 13×9 baking dish. The perfect size for my family of 6. I topped them with a cream cheese glaze.

We ate some for breakfast. Then again a slice for dessert! Done.

If you prefer to make your own strawberry filling, that’s totally cool!! ENJOY!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I added cinnamon to the crust.  I baked crust 10 minutes before adding the filling to ensure it cooked all the way.  Used apple for one and peach for another. 

  2. These were easy and so delicious! I made them for a potluck, and someone at the party was eating one and asked me, “Have you tried these?” I said, “I made them.” He said, “You MADE them???? They’re amazing!” I am making them again, just a few days later. I love this recipe! Thank you so much!!!

  3. I was so excited to make these, but this recipe doesn’t quite work. I’m positive that my measurements were correct, but the middle was still raw after 32 minutes. I had to cover my pan with foil so that the edges wouldn’t burn, and I’ve put it back in the oven for far longer than the recipe calls for. It’s still baking, but so far we’re at an extra 20 minutes and the middle is still goo. Did you bake this in a convection oven or a conventional oven? I’m using a conventional oven. IF I make this again, I’d modify the recipe to bake in a much smaller pan.

  4. I just made these and the entire middle was pure goo, did not harden up at all no matter how long I cooked them for. Horrible recipe and I followed the directions exactly. Waste of money and time.

    1. Hmmm, I would double check your ingredient measurements. I’ve made these numerous times, with different pie fillings, delicious each time. Sorry it didn’t turn out for you, I know how disappointing that can be!

  5. OMG I am SO glad I came across your adorable blog–These bars are perfect!! And stunning! I was looking to make some sort of ‘strawberry crumble bar’ – I have all of the ingredients to this recipe and can’t wait to make them!! 🙂

  6. I’m in love with these! I almost prefer pie bars to regular pie. It’s the thicker crust, I think. 🙂

  7. Who needs pie when you have these perfect little fruity squares!?? Plus, I love the glaze, which is a lovely touch that you’d miss in a pie.
