Strawberry Shortcake Pie has a cookie crust, pudding filling and tons of fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Perfect for when summer is in full swing around here and I live 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!)

What is Strawberry Shortcake Pie?
Summer is always about the pie. Especially when it’s a No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Pie. It’s my version of strawberry shortcake with a pie crust!
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?
Ingredients in No Bake Strawberry Pie
Crust: 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!
Pudding: 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!)
Strawberries: 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.
How to make Strawberry Shortcake Pie
- The crust comes together in minutes.
- Whisk pudding and milk and just pour it into the crust and let it set up for at least an hour.
- 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.
Variations and Substitutions
- Pudding Mix: Use any flavor pudding mix! Chocolate, vanilla, cheesecake, banana, lemon!
- Crust: You can use any of my crust recipes for this or substitute store bought. I have recipes for Oreo Crust, Peanut Butter Cookie Crust, Graham Cracker Crust and Shortbread Crust!
- Use cool whip instead of whipped cream!
How to Store Pie and Make Ahead Instructions
Store leftover pie in the refrigerator for up to a day. The strawberries will weep after a day.
Don’t top it with the whipped cream until you’re ready to serve it…especially if it’s a hot day!
To make ahead, add the pudding to the pie crust, cover and chill until ready to serve. Then top with fruit and whipped cream.
FAQ about Strawberry Pudding Pie
Wash, hull and slice the strawberries. Be sure to pat them dry before adding to the pie.
Add pudding mix and milk to a medium sized bowl. Whisk, then let sit for a few minutes to soft set.
Use a warm knife to slice. Be sure to use a pie server and loosen the bottom. Sometimes the first slice sticks but after that they will come out clean.

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.

Sometimes summer is more crazy than during the school! And my daughter has been asking for her tips dyed a fun color too…great idea to cut it off when school is back in. And I totally love this fun no bake pie…it looks so delicious…and I made one very similar recently 🙂
Wow, sounds like your house is busy!
This pie! Oh my goodness. It screams summer!
I just met Hayley and ADORE her. . love that she dyed Jordan’s hair! so fun!!! and LOVE this pie!!!! I can’t wait until I can eat sweets again. . will be a glorious day!!!
This pie just screams summer. Love how easy it is to put together and also that it is no bake. Looks delicious as well.
Mmm that strawberry shortcake pie looks super yummy! And I LOVE that it’s a no-bake pie!! 🙂
Man, Jordan is living the life! You on the other hand, are living as chauffeur it sounds like 🙂 time for you to take a break and dye your tips purple. Because OMG YOU MUST DO THAT ASAP. I’m begging you! Also begging for this pie, but that’s another story. Love that it has pudding in it!
No-bake pies are the best and I love using pudding in them! It makes them so creamy. This strawberry shortcake pie looks so perfect for summer! I’m a little jealous of your daughter’s colorful hair too, my parents would never let me do that haha. 🙂
How fun that you let her color her hair! I am 26 and have never colored my hair, not even highlights. And now am too scared to do it! ha!
This pie looks delish! I am all about no bake recipes!
Oh highlights (normal ones) are so fun! I had to go blond once my grays got stubborn. Makes me look younger, lol!
I feel the same way – summers always feel busier and jam-packed with more activities. I think you should totally rock the purple tips, it would look SO good on you 🙂 Love this gorgeous pie! No-bake + strawberries + Golden Oreos = best summer pie!
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.
