Don't you just love patriotic holidays? America has several holidays that call for a celebration like Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, and the Fourth of July. Let's make a Red, White and Blue Pie to honor America in a big way!
I'm bringing back the pie of my childhood for this recipe...and adding a few extra goodies along the way. Have you ever made a lemon pie with cream cheese and Eagle Brand milk? It's a vintage southern recipe. Nothing is more yummy than this tart and sweet treat!
What's in a Red, White and Blue Pie?
- graham cracker crumbs
How to Make It
Red, White and Blue Pie is easy to put together. Start by mixing graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar in your favorite pie plate. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the plate and up the sides.
Bake crust in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes while you're making the pie.
Blend cream cheese with a mixer at high speed until creamy. Add lemon juice and beat on high for at least 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix until there are no lumps.
Add blueberries and mix on high for 1 minute until they break up a bit. Add Eagle Brand milk and mix until pie filling is smooth.
Pour filling into cooled crust and decorate as desired.
If you don't want to make a flag topper, you can always pour a combination of raspberries and blueberries on top and call it a day. But, if your creative side is bursting at the seams, it's easy to make the flag topping.
Start at the left hand side of the pie and outline the corner with blueberries, then fill it in as shown in the photos.
Make the stripes by starting at the top with raspberries. Make a line of raspberries from left to right, then skip a row and make another line until you get to the bottom of the pie.
- It's as easy as pie to make. 🙂
- It's as yummy as it is pretty.
- What a great way to celebrate our patriotic holidays!
