Recipe Notes

If mixture seems really runny with 4 ounces of cream cheese you can add the second 4 ounces. Note:The mixture is a little runny looking, don't worry the gelatin and fridge time firms the pie.
If your pie doesn't firm up all the way to your liking you can pop it in the freezer for a bit to make slicing easier. Serve cold. Topped with whip cream and berries.

You can always use a quality canned whip cream to top the pie when done but, you still will need the heavy whipping cream for inside your pie.

The thing I love about these no bake desserts is if there is any baking to be done it’s for a very short time. You’ll love this pie with graham cracker crust but, if it gets to be over 100 degrees where I live I head to the store for a pre made graham cracker crust. No harm, just a shortcut anyone can take and I’m sure your pie eaters won’t mind.
