White Chocolate Berry Pie

I found this recipe in my mom’s stash of cookbooks and the piles of hand written recipes.  It was taped to an index card and turning quite yellow and crumbling.  I never remembered having this as a kid.  Hmmm, maybe she made it and took it with her to their card parties.  Hubby dearest says that the card party peeps were the important crowd.  He also commented that mom probably made it for dad before the 5 kids.  hmmm.  Wait…you need a microwave,…. so it had to be after the kids were around….Maybe one of my siblings remembers this pie.  hmmmm…..

Sure is yummy!

White Chocolate Berry Pie

1  15-ounce package Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust

5 squares Baker’s Premium White Chocolate

2 tablespoons Milk

4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened

1/3 cup Powdered Sugar

1 teaspoon Grated Orange Peel

1 cup Whipping Cream, whipped

2 cups Raspberries (or sliced Strawberries)

HOW TO:

Bake the pie crust according to package directions.  You will be using one pie crust.  I guess sometimes the packaging comes with more than one crust.  I don’t know….never used a packaged pie crust.

Cool the crust completely before continuing.   ( I cheat and use the refrigerator).

Microwave 4 of the 5 squares of chocolate and milk for about 2 minutes or so, depending.  The chocolate should be almost completely melted.  Remove and stir until completely melted.  Yes, there will be an extra square of chocolate left…but it’s for later.  Set aside.

Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and orange peel in a small bowl until smooth.  Beat in the white chocolate mixture.

Fold the whipped cream into the mixture.  Spread the mixture in the bottom of the cooled crust.  Top with Raspberries.

Now microwave that last square of white chocolate until completely melted.  Drizze over the raspberries.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
