Prep Time: 30 min.

Cook Time: 30 min.


  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tbsp.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • Max Pie Topper (Optional)


  • 9-in. pie plate
  • Wire rack


  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Stir the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted butter into a medium bowl. Spoon the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate and press evenly on the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Bake until fragrant, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer pie plate to a wire rack and cool while preparing the filling.

  2. Step 2

    Beat the cream cheese and 2/3 cup sugar into a medium bowl with an electric mixer set on medium speed, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, until smooth. Add the lemon juice and zest and the sour cream, beating until just smooth.

  3. Step 3

    Pour the mixture into the prebaked pie crust. Bake until center is just set, about 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

  4. Step 4

    Refrigerate until pie is chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight.

  5. Step 5

    Toss the sliced strawberries with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar to coat. Arrange the strawberries on top of the chilled pie.

  6. Step 6 (Optional)

    Add the Max Pie Topper.
