This morning I had the opportunity to be on Good Things Utah again. If you missed it, here is a link to the segment. It is always nerve wracking to be on live TV but I am always grateful for the opportunity! The hosts are always so friendly and make me feel right at home. Today I made one of my favorite desserts of all time, my Biscoff Berry Cream Pie. This dessert is in my top 3 most requested desserts my friends and family ask me to make. My husband who doesn’t even like pie, LOVES this pie. My mother in law deemed it her favorite dessert ever!
This dessert almost got named Red, White and Berry Pie because its so patriotic and perfect for a 4th of July celebration. It is red, white and blue after all! It starts with a homemade pie crust (or store bought if you want a super easy version), it then has a secret layer of crunch Biscoff spread, its then filled with a whipped cream and cream cheese filling and topped with a mountain of fresh berries covered in a sweet glaze. It’s served cold and there are never leftovers, that’s how good it is!
The inspiration for this dessert came from my dad, who if you didn’t know, is a restaurant owner and chef. He makes the most amazing Chocolate Cream Pie for Thanksgiving every year and about 5 years ago he surprised us all and put a secret layer of crunchy Biscoff spread in the Chocolate Cream Pie and it knocked our socks right off, it was pure genius. I knew I wanted to make a fruity version of that pie and this is what I came up with!
Tips & Tricks:
- If you’ve been here awhile, you know I prefer to make everything 100% from scratch, so naturally I make my own pie crust BUT I get that a lot of you don’t have the time or patience for that so you can totally use premade frozen pie crusts! Marie Calendars makes a great crust that can be found in the frozen section. If you are short on time, use these instead of making your own! It’ll save you over an hour of prep time!
- If you are making the homemade pie crust, just know the crust is very forgiving. Its a soft dough so sometimes it falls apart as you are picking it up to put into the pie pan. Don’t freak out, just pinch it back together in the pan. It’s all about the flavor anyway and doesn’t have to look perfect.
- You can use any mix of berries you prefer! I like a mix of all 4 or sometimes I will do just blueberries or just blackberries! It’s really up to you!
