I love to make this pie with fresh blueberries and strawberries from area farms. It's an easy summer treat that my family just gobbles up.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 to 4 drops red food coloring, optional
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine half of the strawberries and lemon juice; mash berries. Add 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, lemon zest and remaining sugar until smooth. Spread into the crust.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine cornstarch and reserved strawberry mixture until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in food coloring if desired. Cool slightly.
  3. Fold in blueberries and remaining strawberries. Spread over cream cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
