This pie can be made ahead and frozen. SO it's not unusual for me to have one ready to serve in the freezer. I simply remove it from the freezer a few minutes before slicing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2012

"Couldn't taste the cream cheese very much. It didn't set well either. But it was still okay. I added fruit to the top to make it more interesting."

"Does this have to be frozen? Could it be just refrigerated?"
