This luscious cream pie recipe features a homemade pie crust with a cream cheese filling and is topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.

How to Make It

Step 1

Make crust: Preheat oven to 400°F. In a bowl, mix flour and salt. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Sprinkle with 3 Tbsp. ice water; mix with a fork just until dough forms a ball (add water if needed). Form into a disk, wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes. On a floured surface, roll out into an 11-inch round. Fit into a 9-inch pie pan and crimp edge. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Line crust with foil and fill with pie weights. Bake for 6 minutes, remove foil and bake until lightly golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3

Make filling: In a bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with a mixer on high speed. Beat in cream and vanilla, scraping down sides of bowl, until fluffy and well-mixed. In another bowl, gently mix berries.

Step 4

Spoon two-thirds of cream mixture into crust; smooth top. Spoon two-thirds of berries over cream. Mound remaining cream in center and top with remaining berries. Chill for 1 to 4 hours.

Lovely and Light

Made this for our Memorial Day dinner and it was really lovely. The perfect light ending to a summer meal. I agree with other reviewers that if you whip the filling properly on high speed, it will set up beautifully and yield a fluffy, creamy filling that tastes a bit like a lighter version of cheesecake! To add a bit of depth I used 2 teaspoons of Amaro in place of the vanilla extract, and also soaked my berries in Amaro, then drained well before adding them to the pie. Delicious.

Very nice. I used my own crust recipe and you could use any berries or peaches as filling. Taste is like cheesecake. It sets up fine, just beat until it holds a firm shape.

Delicious. I used a purchased crust and the filling did not set, but it may be because I did not beat the filling enough. This was so incredibly easy to make and delicious, I will make it again.

I don't understand why anyone rate this poorly. It sets up beautifully. You just have to do what Devo says, " whip it, whip it good!"

Delicious dessert... reminds me of the Berry Berry Berry Good ice cream at Coldstone. My dessert did not set, but after reading the reviews, I think it is because I did not whip the cream enough.

This was delicious and very easy. I cheated and used a frozen pie crust instead of making my own. I read other reviewers comments about the pie not setting, but I had no problems. Once you add the heavy cream, you need to beat it on high speed until it looks like whipped cream.

If you make this pie really beat the filling so that it will set.
