Lemon Berry Pie

My friend had a great idea for her son's birthday party...he loves pie, so she hosted a Pie Party!! Each family made a pie to share AND she even had take home containers so we could take home some of the leftovers!! Mmmmmm!!! Here's what we (we, meaning my wonderful husband) made:


1/2 (4 oz) Cream Cheese, cubed, softened

1 tablespoon milk

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed

1 ready-to-use graham cracker crust (6 ounces or 9 inch)

1 pint strawberries

2 cups cold milk

2 pkgs (4-serving size) Vanilla or Lemon Flavor Instant Pudding and Pie Filling (we used lemon)

BEAT cream cheese, 1 Tbs milk, and sugar in medium bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Stir in lemon peel and juice. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping. Spread evenly onto bottom of crust. Reserve a few strawberries for garnish, if desired; cut remaining strawberries in half. Press strawberry halves into cream cheese layer.

POUR 2 cups milk into large bowl. Add pudding mixes. Beat with wire mix 1 minute. Gently stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping. Spoon over strawberries in crust.

REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until set. Garnish with remaining whipped topping and reserved strawberries just before serving.
