Red, White and Blue Berry Pie Recipe

Red, White and Blue Berry Pie Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar

"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."

"this is my new favorite dessert. I first made it last 4th of July but didn't think I would care for it because I'm not a big blueberry fan but I was wrong. It is delicious. I have made it with A short bread crust and also a cookie crust. All very good"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 4, 2011

"I have made this pie many, many times and always get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I have found that it works very well to substitute frozen unsweetened raspberries for the fresh ones, which are often outrageously priced. However, for the blueberries, it's preferable to use fresh berries for the best flavor. A delicious pie -- highly recommended!"
