Sandy’s Simple Strawberry Almond Pie

We’ve been collecting recipes from Lynn’s family’s collection, for your enjoyment.

You can find the whole recipe series here. Hope you enjoy!


1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tbsp. granulated sugar (or brown sugar is yummy too!)
1 container (250g) of light or regular cream cheese at room temperature
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp of vanilla
½ – 1 tsp of almond extract or amaretto (depending on how much you like almond flavour!)
4 cups (or more) of fresh, sliced strawberries (yummy with fresh raspberries, too!)
¼ cup seedless strawberry jam
sliced almonds for garnish


  1. Mix together graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar and pat, evenly into a lightly greased pie plate.
  2. Bake at 10 min. at 350°. Or, you can cheat, and use a pre-made graham cracker pie crust.
  3. Cream together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract. Once pie crust has cooled, gently spread mixture over bottom of crust.
  4. Make a pretty arrangement with the strawberries on the top of the filling. Mix jam until it is smooth and drizzle over berries.
  5. Garnish around the edge with sliced almonds.
  6. Place pie in fridge for about four hours before serving.
