Are you needing a dessert for a Fourth of July Party? Well here is a delicious and Patriotic pie that will fit the bill.


1/2 package (15 ounces) refrigerated pie crust (1 crust)

1 quart fresh strawberries, divided

3/4 cup cold milk

1 package (3.3 ounces) white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

1 cup thawed, frozen light whipped topping

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Let pie crust stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Gently unfold onto lightly floured surface. Roll to an 11 1/2-inch circle using Baker's Roller™. Place crust in Deep Dish Pie Plate, pressing dough into bottom and up sides. Prick bottom and sides using pastry tool. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.

3. Melt white chocolate in Small Micro-Cooker®, uncovered, on HIGH 1 minute, stirring every 10 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Do not overheat. Dip strawberry halves in melted chocolate; place on a sheet of Parchment Paper, cut side down. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until set.

4. Using Skinny Scraper, scrape remaining melted chocolate over bottom of prepared pie crust, spreading evenly to coat entire bottom and sides of crust. Layer sliced strawberries over bottom of crust.
