Barbara's Berry Cream Pie
If you ever paid a visit to Briermere Farms in Riverhead, Long Island then you know about their delicious pies. My favorite is their boysenberry! The tartness of the berries blending with the fluffy sweet cream filling is the perfect combination. Not being a pie maker I never heard of National Pie Day, which is celebrated every January 23rd. So, when the director of our Fitness Center sent a community-wide announcement about a pie contest to celebrate the event, I was intrigued. I decided to give it a try and make that boysenberry cream pie. I couldn't get fresh boysenberries here in NC so I decided to use fresh raspberries, blackberries, and canned boysenberries calling it Berry Cream Pie! I was thrilled with how it turned out. My husband Gary loves it and I'm happy to say my pie took 2nd Place 🥈 (Teresa's pie took 1st place🥇)
- 1 Sour Cream blind-baked pie crust
- 9-inch Pyrex pie dish
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 4 Tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 can boysenberries, reserve 3 Tablespoons of juice then drain well
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 1 pint fresh blackberries
- 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 Tablespoon butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1½ cups heavy cream
- 1 (8 ounces) package full-fat cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sour cream (full fat)
- In a medium saucepan, whisk the sugar and cornstarch together. Stir in the fruit, reserved boysenberry juice, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened.
- Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Set aside and let cool.
- Using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, pour heavy cream into the bowl. Beat on medium until stiff peaks form. Transfer to another bowl.
- Replace the whisk attachment with a paddle attachment on the stand mixer. Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla into the stand mixer bowl and beat until well combined, approximately 2 minutes.
- Fold in the whipped cream and sour cream until evenly incorporated.
- Spread cream filling into your blind-baked, cooled pie crust. Top with the cooled berry topping and place some fresh berries on top. Refrigerate pie at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
Notes: You could also add strawberries & blueberries or whatever berries you love.
