Make Your Easter Baking Easier with Frozen Berry Cream Pie

I love making fancy, decadent desserts but between my blog and my boys, I don’t have a whole lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Quick and easy is the name of the game in this house!

I love pies for just that reason. Pastry is the most finicky part of most pies, but a store-bought shell simplifies the job and speeds up my cooking.

It took me quite a while to master a basic pie pastry and while I do make it myself every once in a while, I love using Tenderflake Deep Dish Pie Shells or my favourite graham cracker shell when I’m eager to get dessert finished quickly.

So when I was looking for a fun spring dessert for our family’s upcoming Easter celebration, I grabbed a graham cracker pie crust from the store and started brainstorming. Since spring always has me craving fresh, fruity flavours, I used the crust to create an incredibly simple Frozen Berry Cream Pie.

I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer to whip up this dessert and the filling was ready in mere minutes. The blend of berries and ice cream was fresh, light and satisfying, perfect for a spring dessert!

I love the way that a store-bought pie shell makes creating delicious Easter desserts so easy, and I’m planning to make a few more this week too. Whether you’re whipping up a savoury breakfast quiche or a lemon meringue pie for Easter dessert, not having to make your own pastry will help you get your baking done faster, so you can get back to enjoying some Easter fun with the kids!

Frozen Berry Cream Pie! This easy ice cream pie whips up in just minutes with only 3 ingredients! Try it with a mix of your favourite berries, either fresh or frozen, and then treat your guests to this easy dessert!
