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

"This recipe has been around for years. I first tried this when I saw it in the Taste of Home magazine. It is awesome! Only thing is I use strawberries in place of raspberries. Be prepared for an empty pie plate and plenty of requests for this recipe!!!!"

"This was delicious .As someone else suggested I substituted Stawberries for the raspberries.I also used strawberry jello.I would suggest a deep dish crust it makes a lot of filling. Can't wait to make it for the 4th of July. I also may try with peaches and strawberries sometime"
