Red, White and Blue Berry Pie

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 holiday party without this tasty treat! —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska

    Prep: 15 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons raspberry gelatin
  • 1 pint fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 Dough for single-crust pie
  • 1 pint fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups whipped topping

Directions

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll crust to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Line crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edge is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 2 minutes. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Divide mixture in half. Stir blueberries and lemon juice into one portion; spread over crust. Chill until set. Gently fold raspberries into remaining gelatin mixture; cool to room temperature and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping; spread over blueberry layer. Refrigerate until filling is set, about 2 hours.
  • Carefully spread raspberry mixture over cream cheese layer. Chill for at least 4 hours.
Editor's Note
Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
