Crazy for Crust

No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie

Summer is in full swing around here and that means I’m living on no-bake recipes, strawberries are super cheap, and I’ve got pie on the brain. (Who am I kidding? I always have pie on the brain!)

No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie - a fast, easy, an foolproof pie recipe for summer!

So, when did summer become busier than the school year? Oh yeah, when my daughter’s social calendar rivals a socialite. Whoever coined the “lazy days of summer” has not lived a week in my shoes.

This last week, the first full week of carefree activities and no homework included 2 slumber parties, a cousin sleepover, a swim play date, a dance recital, and a trip to see Grandma and Papa. I’m exhausted.

Oh, and we can’t forget about the main big-time event that happened: Jordan got her honor roll/principal’s list reward. Hayley came over and dyed the tips of her hair teal! Jordan’s been begging for colorful streaks forever but they’re not allowed to have them at school. We decided to use permanent dye on the tips of her hair and then in August we’ll just chop it off.

She loves it. I’m jealous. I’m living vicariously because really? I want purple tips, but the stick is too far up for me to actually go get them.

So I guess summer is a little carefree…if we’re talking about hair, that is. And maybe pie.

Summer is always about the pie. Especially when it’s a No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie.

EASY No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie

This pie is stupid easy, which is what you need when the lazy days of summer get so hectic you can’t take a breath. Plus, it’s no bake, full of strawberries and pudding, and the crust is made from Golden Oreos.

Plus, all those juicy red strawberries just scream summer, don’t they?

EASY No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie

When I saw the 2 pound clamshells of strawberries for only $5 at my grocery store, I bought way too many of them. My eyes were bigger than my stomach, so I immediately thought of shortcake. The shortcake then turned into a pie, which most things do around these parts.

This pie starts with my easy no bake Oreo crust – but you use Golden Oreos. You could even use Lemon Oreos for a yummy flavor twist! The crust comes together in minutes.

Whenever I think of the pies from my childhood I think of pudding. All the summer pies my mom made had some flavor of pudding in them. (Her favorite was banana cream!) I filled this pie with an instant vanilla pudding mix. (You can also use cheesecake, coconut, or lemon pudding mix!) Just pour it into the crust and let it set up for at least an hour.

That’s when the magic happens: the strawberries! I just sliced a pound of them and piled them on. You could use even more if you want a higher pie. Top it with whipped cream and you have a delicious summer pie. Note: don’t top it with the whipped cream until you’re ready to serve it…especially if it’s a hot day!

  1. You can’t tell us that Jordan got awesome hair colour and then not post a picture! 😉

    I had half of my hair dyed purple for a while. I loved it, but my hair wasn’t so keen on the bleach I had to use to get the purple to show up. Just henna now.

  2. If any part of you wants purple tips, get purple tips. Because if you think the stick is up there, people tell me it gets worse with time. So seize the day, Dorothy! It’s summer. You can have funky hair. Totally allowed. 
    I love stupid easy recipes. They’re my 100% favorite. And this one is pretty much all anyone needs for summer pie!

  3. I love Jordan’s hair, she suits it so much! I definitely think you should get purple tips, you could create a new summer trend. I used to have blonde ombre hair last summer but I got it all trimmed off – I wish I didn’t now!  I love the look of this pie, I did exactly the same as you, I saw a kilo of strawberry for only £4, and My family and I ate them all in one sitting 😀 Pinned! 

  4. Love no bake recipes, they are the easiest and perfect for summer! Purple is my favorite color so I say go for it!!

  5. Love the minimal ingredients list and how it doesn’t require an oven! 🙂

  6. I’m a strawberry fanatic. Love it!

  7. So, when did summer become busier than the school year? Oh yeah, when my daughter’s social calendar rivals a socialite. <—- SAME!!! I was trying to find a 4-day break in the action so she can go on (another) trip and literally there's nothing open between camps, clinics, trips, etc. NUTS. And trust me, I didn't try to overschedule her but it just happened! And now I feel overscheduled!

    This pie. No bake. Big berries, YES!

    • Exactly – I didn’t aim for her to be this busy. In fact, I only did 3 camps on purpose. And now…every week is so full. But she’s still “BORED” all the time, lol.

  8. Strawberries are in season in CT right now. My boyfriend and I went picking yesterday and made several different treats with the berries. This looks like it would be a hit in my house. I love fruit and pudding together. 🙂

  9. Both strawberries and oreo crust. Yes please! I`m afraid if I make this I won`t stop eating it.

  10. INTO IT. Plus: strawberries = health food = fine for breakfast. 

  11. THAT FORK. And all shortcake things all the time for all of summer. Win win win!

  12. Yummy pie and YES, get purple tips! Just have Haley do it for you like she did for Jordan. Maybe I should go with hot pink to match my fingernail polish!!?!?!?!?

  13. These no-bake desserts are going to become a staple in my house right now since temps are going to be near 100 this week. Plus, I can’t get enough strawberries!!

  14. Yea, for the no-bake desserts in the summer!  And adding fruit makes it guilt-free, right?

  15. ‘Tis the season for no-bake pies!  I can’t resist stocking up on all of the fresh strawberries.  There’s not room for much else in my refrigerator right now (except fresh blueberries, of course).  I love this pie, especially the Golden Oreo Crust!

  16. Oh, that shortcake pie really looks great. Seems to be a wonderful recipe for a warm summer day. I definitely have to get some fresh strawberries in order to try your recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it!

    Warm wishes, Susan

  21. I was JUST joking with another friend about how summer is not relaxing! Dance rehearsal, swim lesson, soccer practice. BUT at least I don’t have to make lunches in the morning….until summer camps kick in. LOVE this pie. Trevor saw it on my screen yesterday, and well, you know him and Strawberries. Totally making it.

  32. Summer is ALL about stupid easy! And strawberries, and no-bake. I hope you get a few lazy days squeezed in that crazy schedule yet this summer!
