I'm sure you will love this pie from the very first bite, and this is a good time to make it, as the strawberries are so ripe and juicy now.

Berry Cherry Pie Recipe

1 baked 9" pie shell
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon peel
1 pint (2 cups) whole strawberries
1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling
Whipped cream

Combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lemon peel and beat until smooth and well blended. Spread mixture into baked pie shell. Lightly press strawberries into cream cheese cheese mixture and spoon cherry pie filling over top. Chill for several hours. Garnish with dollops of whipped cream and serve.
NOTE: I always add 1/4 tsp. almond extract to cherry pie filling to give it extra flavor.

I am interested in finding a very OLD fashion blackberry cobbler recipe. Our adult son requested Mamma's berry cobbler recipe. Regretfully, I haven't a clue as to exact recipe! Yes, it was the best and time consuming. Mother cooked the berries with sugar and water. Added a crust, browned it under the broiler. Then had a second layer of berries. Last, she put a top crust and baked in the oven till brown. It had the dumpily texture in bottom and crispy crunch on top.

I have searched the Internet and been unsuccessfully in my finds.

I make a blackberry pinwheel that is very good but not like Mamma's. I would greatly appreciate if someone has one that sounds like/similar to my description. Many thanks to all the contributions of tested recipes in Nancy's newsletter.

Cherry Cream Danish Recipe

2 sheets puff pastry dough, thawed
1 large can cherry pie filling
2 3.25-oz vanilla pudding snack cups
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tsp orange juice

Preheat oven to 375°F. Lay puff pastry sheets on a clean surface. Cut each sheet into nine equal squares.

Spread one heaping teaspoon of vanilla pudding in the center of each square, on a diagonal.

Top with a small scoop of cherry pie filling. Fold the side corners over the cherries, forming a cannoli shape. Place on your Temp-tations® 13x9'' Lid-It; repeat until all 18 are done.
You will need to bake these in two batches. If desired, brush the tops of each one with egg wash (egg whisked with water) for a shiny finish.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
Once cooled, whisk together the powdered sugar and orange juice until smooth. Add more juice if necessary. Drizzle over each Danish and serve.

Makes 18 Danishes
