Reviews forBlackberry Cheese Pie
"really refreshing pie. the cream cheese layer is silky and blends nicely with the fruit. pretty."
"Grand recipe. Got great raves with this dessert. Guests wanted recipe. Wouldn't change a thing except that I added half blueberries with half of raspberries at the end of recipe when it asked for remaining berries - good addition. This recipes will be added to a family favorite."
"I would use different fruit"
"Haven't made it yet but I'm sure I will. Recipe says to ad to the sugar/corn starch mixture in the sauce pan."
"I've never made so many pies in one summer - my boyfriend requests this at least once a week. I have to make two at a time just so the rest of us get some!"
"you left out of the instructions when to add the pineapple/orange juice. I am sure you meant to cook with sugar and cornstarch-but my 35 yr old daughter couldn't figure it out. Diane"
