Are you looking for a easy and festive dessert for your 4th of July celebration?
Well, here it is!
Pie Crust - you can use a pre-made pie crust or make your own. I made my own using my Grandma Seger's pie crust recipe that is slightly salty (1 1/4 c. flour, 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 c. shortening, 3 T cold water). Use your favorite gluten free crust or even a no bake graham cracker crust would taste good with this pie.
White Layer - Whip together 8 oz of plain cream cheese, 1 c. powdered sugar, and 1 t. lemon juice. Spread on the bottom of the pre baked pie crust. Chill while you make the red and blue layer.
Red and Blue Layer - Wash and slice 1 c. strawberries and 1 c. blueberries.
Combine 2 c. water, 1 c. sugar, 4 T. corn starch in a pot, stir constantly, and bring to a boil.
Once it is boiling, add 1/2 a package of strawberry Jell-O
Stir and let boil for 2 minutes.
Turn off heat and add berries.
Carefully pour over white layer and refrigerate for 2+ hours, or until the Jell-o is set.
Slice and serve!
