Blueberry Peaches and Cream Pie

This week's Pie Guru is Leslie Marcus. She is sharing a Blueberry and Peaches and Cream pie recipe with us.Thank's Leslie for taking TRPC challenge and letting us eat your pie!

I am doing my sister's recipe of Blueberry Peaches and Cream Pie. I think this is her best dessert recipe. I have served it hot, but I actually think that I prefer it cold. If your grocery store does not carry Shortbread pie crusts, you can substitute it with a Graham Cracker crust. It is also good with just peaches or just blueberries, and I bet it would still be good with another fruit.

Blueberry Peaches and Cream Pie by Karin Calloway


  • 1 9-inch shortbread pie crust
  • 1 cup regular or reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup blueberries, washed and dried well
  • 1 cup peaches, peeled and sliced (about 3 medium peaches)

Streusel Topping

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup self-rising or all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sour cream, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and egg in a medium bowl. Place blueberries in a small bowl and fold in half of the sour cream mixture. Add the peaches to the remaining sour cream mixture. Spread the peach mixture in the bottom of the pie crust. Top with the blueberry mixture and bake 25 minutes.

While the pie bakes, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly.

After 25 minutes, sprinkle the streusel topping over the pie and return to the oven. Bake 10 minutes, or until browned.

Makes 1 9-inch pie.

Smack Me on the Butt and Call Me Bill PIE

Today's pie is brought to you by The Pie Guru and the letter B.

Smack Me on the Butt and Call Me Bill PIE
(I thought of this pie all on my own!!!)

This recipe will yield 2 pies. 1/2 the recipe for one or give a pie to a friend...or eat 2!


2 deep dish pie crusts - regular pie crust

10 oz pecans
7 oz coconut
1/4 cup butter
1 jar caramel sauce (minimum 10 oz.)

2- 8 oz packages softened cream cheese
14 oz sweetened condensed milk

2 - 3.9 oz packages instant chocolate pudding
8 oz tub of cool whip
1 3/4 cup cold milk

1 LARGE can of spray whipped cream


Prepare pie crust. (I buy frozen so I must bake them first)

1st Layer
Melt butter in skillet. Add pecans and coconut to toast. (stir frequently b/c coconut toasts quickly)
Spread coconut and pecan in bottom of pie crust. Top with caramel sauce - A LOT!

2nd Layer
Use mixer to combine 2 packages of softened cream cheese and 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth.
Spread mixture on top of pecan layer.

3rd Layer
Use mixer to combine 2 packages of instant pudding and 1 3/4 cup cold milk. When smooth, fold in 8 oz cool whip until well blended.
Spread chocolate mixture on top of cream cheese layer.

REFRIGERATE for at least four hours.

Top with Reddi Whip right before serving. Sprinkle pecans on top for prettiness!
Get a glass of milk and eat my pie!!!

Special notes: Jess - 4 hours...hear that?! 4 hours!! Patience my child! ;) Rach - you can leave out the coconut. Cindy and nut haters - substitute with other nuts or styrofoam peanuts!

Pie Club Theme Song

Thanks to Jess for our AWESOME Pie Club Theme Song!
I believe that this is sung to the tune of Gilligan's Island

I like to eat pies at the table
I like to eat pies made by Aunt Mable

I like to eat pies made with fruit
But not pies cooked with eye of newt

I like to eat pies with a warm buttery crust
Lots of butter is a must

I like my pies yummy and sweet
I do not like my pies filled with meat!

I like to eat pies while going for a walk
But about pie club we must not talk!

Rules of Pie Club

The first rule of pie club - nobody talks about pie club

The second rule of pie club - no meat pies. Meat is not a dessert. The only acceptable protein for dessert is nut based.

The third rule of pie club - no puppies in pots, fish, or kale

The fourth rule of fight club...uhhh...I mean PIE club! - if you hear of a local pie eating contest you MUST let me know!

The fifth rule of pie club - you don't have to bake every pie that is posted, but we may think you are weak! ;) (unless of course you have a good your mouth was wired shut or you were going OUT for pie!)
