Red, White and Blueberry Pie:


1 pie crust

1 block of low-fat cream cheese

1 box of cheesecake pudding mix or 1 box or white chocolate pudding mix

3/4 cup of 2% milk

8 same size strawberries

1 cup of blueberries

Cool whip

melting white chocolate


Bake pie crust at 350 for 11 minutes. Find 8 strawberries of the same size, rinse and cut them in half. Dip the strawberries into melted white chocolate, leaving half of it undipped.

While those harden, mix cream cheese, milk, and pudding mix into a bowl until it thickens.

Take the left over melted white chocolate and place it in the bottom of the pie crust. Then, layer sliced strawberries around the bottom of the pie on top of the white chocolate. Then, add the cheese cake mixture over top of the strawberries, spreading it out evenly.

Then, to decorate, form a circle on top of the pie with the white chocolate dipped strawberries. Take a cup of blueberries and poor them in the center, and decorate the outside edge with Cool Whip! Enjoy!
