Blackberry Cheese Pie

This cheese pie is great to serve at church potlucks because it has a memorable taste and look. The citrus tang really goes well with the colorful berries and velvety cream cheese filling. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    Grand recipe. Got great raves with this dessert. Guests wanted recipe. Wouldn't change a thing except that I added half blueberries with half of raspberries at the end of recipe when it asked for remaining berries - good addition. This recipes will be added to a family favorite.

    I've never made so many pies in one summer - my boyfriend requests this at least once a week. I have to make two at a time just so the rest of us get some!

    you left out of the instructions when to add the pineapple/orange juice. I am sure you meant to cook with sugar and cornstarch-but my 35 yr old daughter couldn't figure it out. Diane
