White Chocolate Berry Pie

It's been a while since I've shared a recipe so I'll give you a yummy one today!  Strawberries are in season (yay) so it's perfect timing for this recipe.  I had clipped this recipe (maybe out of an ad) years ago and ran across it again.  Sounded good and I wanted to try a new dessert recipe!

The pie turned out yummy!  My family loved it - light & fluffy, topped with sweet berries.
Why didn't I turn the berries the other way, with points out?  I have no idea, but that would have been prettier.  And I had planned to use a squeeze bottle to make beautiful white chocolate drizzles, but it was too small of a quantity and came out in clumps - LOL!  I think it looks yummy anyway.  Oh and the crust - confession - that is a Marie Callender's frozen crust.  I didn't feel up to attempting pie crust (have ya seen a scarier crust?) again...yet.

White Chocolate Berry Pie
1 pie crust (homemade, refrigerated, or frozen)
5 squares White Chocolate (I used a 4 oz. bar of Ghiradelli - 6 squares in the recipe & 2 for the drizzle)
2 tablespoons milk
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
2 cups sliced strawberries (could top with raspberries or other berries too)

Prepare and bake pie crust.  Cool completely.

Microwave 4 squares ( I did 6) white chocolate and milk.  Microwave on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute and stir until melted.  Cool to room temp.

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and orange peel in small bowl with electric mixer on low until smooth.  Beat in white chocolate mixture.

Fold prepared whipped cream into white chocolate mixture.  Spread in bottom of pie crust.  Arrange berries on top of filling.  Melt remaining white chocolate and drizzle over the top.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until time to serve.  Store in refrigerator.

Enjoy!
