LOOKING for: Berry pies with a cream cheese layer?

terri_pacnwDecember 30, 2004

Long ago my brother used to work at a small Diner. The lady of the place did all the desserts.

She used a cream cheese layer on top of the crust and under her berry pies. (Me recollection though was that it was a little pineapple flavored. But I'm not sure.)

It was just a thin layer.

Her reason for it was to keep the crust from getting soggy.

Anyone every heard of anything like this?

It didn't interfere with the "berry" part..it was just another level of wow to add to the pies.

Sounds good to me too. I have this recipe from a restaurant we use to go to when we lived in Grand Rapids 25 years ago. The owner was generous enough to share a couple of his recipes with me.

years. It was given to my by the

strawberries as well as apricots

I make this with canned blackberry pie filling -- super easy, never fails.

Blackberry Cheese Pie

8 oz cream cheese
¼ c. sugar
1 egg
1 T. lemon juice

21 oz can blackberry pie filling
9" unbaked pie shell

Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add sugar and beat well. Add lemon juice and egg and beat until smooth. Pour into pie shell and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Spread filling over cheese mixture. Raise heat to 400 and bake another 20 minutes, or until crust is brown.
