Kiwi and Cream Pie

Please share

A kiwi filling is swirled in a cream cheese base for a one of a kind pie experience.  If you’ve never had kiwi and cream pie, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Kiwi and cream cheese come together in this fun pie. If you have never tried baking with kiwis, you are missing out!

I have a sad story to tell you.  I am sitting next to an empty pie plate trying to decide what to tell you about this pie.  

So far I have “it was good” and “I wish there was more.”  But, alas there is no more.  Darn!

It all started because I had some kiwi that I wanted to use.  I searched for ideas online, but I didn’t want to make a smoothie or sorbet.  

There were some tasty looking salsas, but that wasn’t what I had in mind either.  So, I set off to make something on my own.

What I ended up with was so tasty!  The kiwi added a light tart tropical flavor swirled into a cheesecake type base.  

This would be really good in a graham cracker crust too, but I didn’t have any graham crackers on hand today.  So, pie crust it was!

After just eating a half of a homemade pizza, Matt still got a second piece, which almost never happens with dessert.  He had to share one with Sam when he came by too.  

He made the comment that I could make it again whenever I would like.

It always cracks me up when he says stuff like that.  But I took it as a compliment.  

He had just gotten done telling me about how he really isn’t into pies, other than his mom’s apple pie, so I was happy to have one he would request again.

I don’t know why, but I just love that you can see the speckle of the seeds in the kiwi filling.  So fun!

If you use graham cracker crust, is the bake time and temperature different? I would like to try with graham cracker crust. Thanks

I would think you could bake it the same. The bake time is needed to set the filling. A graham cracker crust would be so good. Please let me know how it goes!

I never had either, but I couldn't see a reason why it wouldn't work. I'm glad I tried it!
