Treat Tuesday #88...

Treat Tuesday:  Fresh Berry Slab Pie

*Summer is right around the corner, or so we hope.

*This is the perfect dessert to serve at any summer gathering.

*Practice now to get it just right and then you will be ready to serve it up during June, July, and August.  


box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
packages (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
cup sugar
tablespoon milk
cups assorted fresh berries (sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
cup strawberry glaze


Heat oven to 450°F. Remove pie crusts from pouches. On lightly floured surface, unroll and stack crusts one on top of the other. Roll to 17x12-inch rectangle. Fit crust into ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, pressing onto corners. Fold extra crust even with edges of pan. Prick with fork. Crimp edges. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • In medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar and milk until smooth. Spread into crust-lined pan. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set.

  • Gently mix berries and strawberry glaze. Spoon berry mixture on top of cream cheese-topped pie crust. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
