Red, White and Blue Berry Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
To me, this colorful pie is the epitome of summer. Bright blueberries and raspberries sandwich a cream cheese layer in the pie that’s quite festive. I can’t imagine a Fourth of July party without it. —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska

"I want to make this pie because it got such good reviews. I dont care for raspberries so I will sub with fresh strawberries and strawberry gelatin. Also, whipped topping is such a sub standard product made of oil and chemicals, I will make real whipped cream and use that instead."
