This pie is fantastic and SUPER easy! It makes the perfect dessert for your Sunday family dinner. It comes together in minutes and can be made a day ahead. I usually make it on Saturday afternoon and let it chill in the fridge overnight. It is fun to bring out such a pretty dessert, but not have to slave away all day creating it, you know?! We all need a few recipes that taste great and impress your family, but are actually quick and easy, right?! In the picture I used Cherry Pie filling for the topping, but blueberry is our favorite! I have never done this, but I think fresh fruit in season would be awesome as a topper too! Another idea I had is that this would be a fun dessert for your loves on Valentines Day! Especially if you are busy that day like me with class parties and cupid-ish activities:)
This pie is a winner at our house–hope your family loves it as much as we do!
